I'm on it. Science Channel is running a documentary about it from start to finish, so you know this launch will probably have more high def cameras on it than any other before.

All of the aero students in FL, who didn't do so well in school, usually got one of two jobs:

1. Retrieve the boosters from the ocean.

2. Glue new thermal tiles on between missions.

Listening to the last 2 minutes of the countdown was very cool!


I had the conference room projector up and streaming in HD. Our office of 40+ folks were in there watching. Total silence for 6 minutes.
