Spaceshuttles return to flight

Looks like everythings gone good. Its in space, and just jetisoned the external fuel tank.



Was hoping to get pictures to post, but it was cloudy, so I didn't have as clear a view as I normally do from my front yard.

I'm envious of you William. I used to live in Florida and watched it every single time. I think it's one of the most amazing things I have ever seen, and I am so glad we are finally back in flight.
Don't know if any of you watched the national coverage, but the onboard camera is new. I thought that was pretty sweet.

Prayers and blessings to the crew for a safe return.

Nasa's web site had a live broadcast (when it wasn't buffering)

it was nice to be able to watch one as it went up.

Afterwards (and I would assume even now still)

they did re-plays of the laucnh from dozens of different "engineering cameras" they called them that watched specific parts of the shuttle, engines, tank arms, etc. And while replaying those views, they were broadcasting all the radio chatter between control and the shuttle, was good background noise while working this morning.
