Zero should stand below it with a Bic Lighter to set it off!

I’ll be watching from East Orlando. Don’t want to battle the crowds.

A "Love Note" Sent To Jim Robinson

“I do so enjoy these money raising pleas. Too bad you kicked off so many patriots back in the day that criticizing the big spending Bush was a cardinal sin on the so called conservative free republic.

Nope, I will happily continue to freeload information from this site. If the lights go dark, well, so be it...”


F(Reeper) I(n) N(ame) O(nly)

There are those who would love to see Free Republic shut down. If you can, donate and keep the lights on.

We were there for the initial launch date when it was cancelled. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to make this one. Might be able to see it from Lakeland if there isn’t any cloud cover between Lakeland and the Cape.

And so ends 50 years of US human space flight. For the next 10 years we will have 0 launch capability.

Fits right into that whole "Post American Future" thing don't it.

Would that be considered a Muslim Outreach Program?

No, it would be considered a gift to the United States of America.

Having said my political piece...

I'll be getting up for tomorrow's (tres early for the West Coast) launch. Coffee will be set to auto-brew @ 5:15am and then...Go Endeavour, Go!

It never realy is scheduled, but most of the major news networks interrupt programmiong to show it live. I usually tune in to NASA TV online and avoid the mindless droning of the know-nothing newsies that cover the launches.

Geez...only one more launch to go after this.....

Funny, But number 10 post looked just like a regularly scheduled incoming flight to LAX only without the sunset colors to set it off...or something.

PS: Ive watched every day since the "was it a launch or was it my imagination" debate and still not seen any contrails that looked like a missile (shuttle) launch.
