Discovery....Go For Launch!

Here at Burns Software we're fascinated by the United States and International Space Programs. It's very rare that we get to see the live launch sequences, and all the things and people that make it a successful mission.

Today I got the chance and the launch window fit into my schedule, so I decided to sit and watch the STS-119 Space Shuttle pre-launch and launch events. It's all a wonder it works! But recalling from my days as a private pilot, you've gotta have the checklist and a good crew! :)

Here's a view at the T-Minus 9:00 hold pattern from the developer lounge here at Burns Software.



Just for those that missed it, it was a beautiful launch! You can check out some footage over at www.nasa.gov. God speed Discovery and good luck accomplishing your mission objectives. We support you!
