Might be going off - rare night launch...

40% chance of launch but given the clouds might be spectacular

One of the very few things I miss about Florida was being able to see the shuttle launches. People all over the state, whatever they were doing, would stop and watch the skies when they heard that the shuttle had actually launched, particularly at night. Always spectacular, even when on one occasion it turned to disaster for those of us watching.

Has a Shuttle ever launched on schedule? It's like Air Canada or GO Transit is running the Kennedy Space Center or something...

wtf! It has nothing to do with the staff. It has to do with the weather conditions and whether the shuttle or launch equipment develops a mechanical failure. Most of the time, though it's the weather conditions. Why would you blame staff?

With the Shuttle program done and over with it's a bit of a moot point.


Hey, what the hell is up with the delayed Juno launch????!!!!
