And lift off for Space Shuttle Atlantis!!!!

Tomorrow I head out to Houston for mission imagery support. I was so excited this afternoon when the weather was looking favorable for launch. Here are some pictures from today's launch.

Wow - watched it on the live feed and it was absolutely textbook and on schedule - after all that hassle! Great job on the nose cone, and here's hoping for no more three-month delays.

A great launch for NASA, everything went just perfect!

Great for you to be able to watch it on the spot. I had to make do with NASA TV.

If I ever get to watch a live shuttle launch, I think I will want to see it with my own two eyes, and waste no time photographing or videotaping it!

On the other hand... I don't really know!

Keep up your great job of showing us how it's really like inside the Shuttle Program.

Great pictures! I got to see the launch for the first time from the side of the road going out to Playlinda Beach. It was such a wonderful afternoon, nice breeze and perfect launch! I created a blog mostly to share with more people the pictures I took from the launch, as well as a few from the cloud formation after the launch. One day I hope I can get to the press site for a launch. My dad is an electrical engineer for USA and as far as I can recall he Hasn't gotten any of the passes for family members to get out there(assuming they still do those). Anyway I must say again Great pictures! :)
