Hello fellow ATS members, i thought i would post this as it will provide a broadcast of the launch and possibly one of the most difficult missions to date.

There are many factors to consider with this mission as many of you are aware that a back crew is has been on stand by if anything goes wrong.

Any way i hope you enjoy this as much as i do. The following link is were you can view it.

59minutes to launch.

You dont need a satellite. Just call your cable provider or go online to their site and find out what channel it is on. I live in central FL and I have Brighthouse and it's channel 49.


Oops tristar you beat me to it. I was typing this as you posted. Sorry.

I believe the launch will go fine, but i have a weird feeling about all this something is not right, cant place my finger on it but then again it maybe due to the summer season coming in.

Its always very interesting to hear the pre flight checks between flight and ground crew stations. With so many pre flight checks i guess there are equivalent problems that might go wrong.

Launch has been delayed at the moment due to ice on one of the umbilical pipes connected to the shuttle. Apparently this happened on STS 126 and didn't cause a problem.

I think they have 40 - 50 mins to launch within todays window.

There was no need to laugh, you asked a simple straight forward and honest question. Just glad you sorted it out and have switched to view it.

You sure about the delay, i just heard there pressing on and only some reference about some cloud build up. But for now there in th green light but if the cloud builds up there going for red light and delay the launch.

I have limited bandwith per day due to satellite internet, streaming video really eats it up. I've checked it twice now and I see they're delayed it both times I was not viewing. Glad to see someone posted about ice buildup being the cause. I have it on a timer to view in another 7 minutes or so.

Have you selected the lower band width , image maybe be slightly poor but it wont eat your bandwidth .

Woot looks like they made it into orbit, or close to. Nothing wrong engine wise it seems. Lets hope these guys can do their job without a hitch so they don't have to launch another shuttle to get them back.

Only problem is a bad... transducer? Ah well they seem to be shrugging it off. I hope hubble stays in use for a good while longer, I love the pictures it takes.

I'm watching the live feed and noticed they're using Windows XP. You can see the taskbar at the bottom of the image. Interesting..
