Don't forget, folks, stay up and see the shuttle launch at 1:36am EDT. It'll be broadcast live on NASA tv. I'm debating setting an alarm or just seeing the replay in the morning, though...

Scheduled launch time is at 1:10 AM EDT tomorrow morning.

Too bad the weather had to turn nasty in the final hours of the countdown.:rolleyes:

1:10? I thought it was 1:36
anyway, I'll be awake - that's 8:10AM or 8:36AM here :)
I'll be able to watch it on the nasatv public channel, right?

Yup, you should be able to watch it just fine. The launch attempt this morning was at 1:36, but tomorrow it will be at 1:10am EDT.

Which means it will be that much longer before the station crew gets to walk on the COLBERT! :p

Well, the valve seemed to work fine in a test earlier this evening..Launch team meets later today(at 1P.M.) to see if Discovery can lift off at 12:22A.M. Friday morning..Keep your fingers crossed! ;)

Fueling is to start at 2:34PM this afternoon..They will find out during this whether the valve functions properly and the launch time is a good one..
