On NASA TV right now: blond babe in the white room - looks like she's part of the closeout crew

ETA: now she's handling a long, um... "probe" I think they called it

Karen Nyberg, the third crewmember from the right, is a looker too.

I am waiting for the launch myself. Every launch is job security for me. We are hoping at work that the program is extended until the Ares and Orion start.

When a future civilization looks back upon us like we look at the Greeks, they will recognize our Space programs as our most important accomplishment.

At risk of sounding like I just walked in from DU... Imagine what our space program would be like if we didn't have to worry about people running planes into skyscrapers. Imagine what our space program would like if we could spend the entire DoD budget on getting off this rock and finding another one.

Imagine what our space program would be like if we didn't spend 60% of the US budget on welfare programs.

The space program could double if we just cut out the graft and waste in the Welfare system.

I would kill to watch a launch in person. I have only seen the boosters tested in person.

Gives me chills every time I watch one of these. I hope to see one in person before they cancel the program.
Link Posted: 5/31/2008 12:16:17 PM EST
Lived in FL for 15 years and never went to see one although we saw it from school and from home. The night launch was cool to see from the house

I've always wanted to see one, but never bothered to take a day off when they were during the week. Just my luck it'd be put off due to weather or some shit.

I of course had to be busy this weekend.

You must be doing better than we are slightly north. I stepped out a couple minutes prior, and there were nothing but a bunch of useless, impotent thunderheads that direction, anyway.

Anyone else still waiting on a certain "oil-producing" region to pull off something like a moon landing or space launch.
