I wrote on Thursday about the historical significance of two different spacecraft on the Shuttle launch pads.
I suspected NASA would have someone take a photo showing both craft, and sure enough it showed up online today.
Ares 1-X is supposed to launch tomorrow (Tuesday) at 8 AM EDT with a four-hour launch window, but there’s only a 40% chance of acceptable weather.
I hope to go out and videotape it, but I’ve been sick with a mild case of the flu since Saturday. If they launch, and if I film it, I’ll post it here as I’ve posted previous launches since arriving in Florida.
