Let's try this again

Let's try this again

In just under six hours, NASA will attempt once again to launch Discovery. I'm going to be getting fairly close, five or six miles from the launch pad, and if it launches I'll be taking some pictures, and posting them here.

Of course, there is no guarantee that they will launch on any given launch day. Given that they don't know for certain that they have the engine cut-off sensors fixed, and given that there are 2 and a half million parts on the shuttle, any glitch could cause them to scrub again. There is also a 20% chance that the weather won't cooperate.

But if they do launch, I'll be there and posting here. Keep your fingers crossed.
