Apparently the Discovery channel is airing HD versions of the launch. Since I live in Indiana, I don’t get to see them live, and we don’t get cable in this rural area, so I don’t get cable. And I don’t really watch enough TV to justify satellite. But those of you getting cable the Discovery Channel seems to have a real good thing to watch.
The only thing that bothers me about the retirement of the shuttle is the fact that the US doesn’t have a replacement delivery system due to take its place until 2012, I think. Until then we will be dependent upon the Russians. I think that this is nuts.
