Up, up and away. The launch appeared nominal. Keep your fingers crossed for a complete success. Huge milestone in space exploration.

I forgot all about the launch. I can't wait to see pics from the scope.

I just happened to wake up about 30 min prior to launch so I stayed up and watched. Historic. Pretty stunning.

Actual launch at about 1:15 on counter.

I had a 68 Volkswagen Beetle in high school that on a good day would do about 80 mph down a long hill

I've been following this and so far everything is going to plan.
