It should launch in a few minutes, about five I think.:

Every time I watch these launches, it brings me back to the Challenger disaster. I was in 2nd or 3rd grade watching the Challenger shuttle launch in 1986. Then it exploded in to a billion pieces over the Atlantic and kids and teachers were screaming and crying.

Can we just hit fast forward? I can't wait 90 seconds.

For Discovery shuttle, yes.

I have not even drank my soda can and it is in space already.

I remember. I was in the USSR. It was one of those events where you remember exactly where you were.

There is live streaming from space. Amazing when you think about the fact that the blue planet is where everything happens to us. We can see live images of where all human beings are. Wars, communication, etc., all of that is right there, and we can see it. It is fascinating.

I laughed.

That must have been an interesting scene.

I read on the news that at 18:25 (6:25 pm) today the Discovery Space Shuttle will be possible to see on the sky as a light-dot. I looked out of my window and th sky is clear, except that it has a constantly flashing dot, which does not flash like other stars or e.g., Venus, but like fire.

I am recording it, and I might post the video later.
