Just missed it. Will have to find a stream online.

Was really looking forward to watching this on tv.

It was a beautiful launch! Discover is now safe in orbit and they are starting their activities to get them all settled in.

I cry every time I see it! :crybaby: Thank God Discovery and her crew are safe!

My little brother and I raced out into the driveway followed by my father to watch the launch. All of my neighbors started coming out as well land we all looked to the East for the bright lights... it's so dazzling.:heart:
I'm envious! That must have been a beautiful site. I'm in Houston and just watched it on NASA tv. Just beautiful!
