I watched it with my 3 year old son. Every launch brings a few tears to my eyes. I remember the Challenger explosion like it was yesterday and we lost the Columbia on my wedding day. When they did the tribute to the Columbia at the Superbowl I had to leave the room for a minute.

I can still remember watching the Apollo missions in class and on a TV that got exactly 3 channels. 2, 11, & 13 were the only ones you could get and all of them carried it live. Big old set of rabbit ears, and push the TV close to the window and wait about a half hour for it to warm up. I will never forget 13 coming home. My Dad worked about a month straight back then. CE Specialist in Blg 30. Mainframes the size of houses and they all had tubes.

I watched the lift-off today and a few minutes later the NASA guy said that Endeavor was being controlled from the Johnson Space Center in Houston. WHOA!!! I've set behind the console at work for over thirty years controlling my part of a chemical plant that was pertinent to the entire facility (no steam - no go!), but I just can't imagine what the guys at the control console might be thinking as they guide that payload up through the louds. Well done, sirs (and madams too). I am in awe of such technology.
