Launch Coverage

I'm watching the live coverage of the MESSENGER launch right now. You can be watching too either on the NASA TV channel (available to some cable and satellite owners) or online at: It's not terribly exciting right now because they're just running through the final checks, but it's about to get really exciting really soon, assuming that Tropical Storm Alex doesn't interfere. Be looking for my former boss, Clay - he's somewhere in the control room. So far I haven't been able to recognize the back of his head. They _have_ interviewed a couple of people I knew though.

So "hope" that Alex's clouds are "transparent" and that everything else goes off without a hitch!
