Atlantis launched

About time!

Stupid weather.

Somehow they managed to get Atlantis launched on a weekend, though, so I could watch it live on NASA TV. However I thought the Russians were only going to let us launch through Friday. I wasn't able to find any information about further negotiation that allowed a launch today, but NASA did it anyway. *shrug*

I wish they could have launched a few weeks ago, then I would have been able to see the shuttle in the sky in the evenings, but now I don't pass under the orbit at the appropriate times of day anymore, so I can't see it. Oh well, there will be opportunities on future missions.

By the way, I've noticed that this journal has become very space-oriented. I didn't really intend for that to be the case. I'll try to think of something else to write about next 🙂
