NASA channel here says it has been up for 90 minutes...is there some kind of delay working in the feed?

Pretty cool anyway.



Is my Pan Am ticket to the moon still good?

I take it back...I now see where they are launching in 2 minutes....

This is really good. It looks like they are launching on the water...the steppes are really flat.

Looks good so far.

YEah....they were talking about minor lateral vibrations....I'll bet that there would have been some minor lateral vibrations in my lower GI tract.

Ground Control is congratulating the crew and saying everything looks nominal for the next phase of flight.

This is really interesting watching these guys at the top of this giant roman candle.

They do look very calm, and even playful. The American and one of the Russians were holding their clipboards up to let the float.

The one Russian is going thru his checklist, and GC is allowin them to uncover and loosed their belts.
