Heads up! Shuttle Launch Immanent

When the countdown started for today’s attempted launch of Space Shuttle Discovery to the International Space Station, weather forecasters put the chance of acceptable conditions at only thirty percent. The shuttle is now heading toward launch less than an hour away, and all constraints are green right across the board.

Amazing how things can turn around. Looks like we might be about to see the first night launch of a space shuttle in four years.

[Update]
Discovery is safely in orbit, and on her way to ISS.
