So I wasn’t able to get up early enough to see the launch live yesterday. I thought I had my alarm set on snooze so it would go back off after 5 minutes, but I guess I didn’t. I was able to view clips online and on the news later, but it’s not quite the same. I might have missed my last chance ever to see the space shuttle take off. It’s not looking good for the space shuttle program. According to this AP news story, the shuttle fleet is grounded until further notice because of this insulating-foam-chunks-always-breaking-off issue that apparently still haunts NASA.
