Watching the Space Shuttle Launch in HD!

If you have HD they are showing the shuttle launch in 15 min on HDNET!

It's so clear it feels like you're in Fla.watching it LIVE!!

I don't watch much TV. You just can't get me to stay inside any building when there are way to many things outside.

Down with the TV.

I usually get to watch the real deal from about 45 miles away, but I was in the middle of one of my lazy 4th of July naps when this one went up.

Nice screen shot!

It's always in the back of my mind that I'm going to see something that I don't want to when they blast off.

A piece of foam did fall off I think prior to the launch. Missed the launch as I was at an A's game in Oakland.

Thumbs up

Remember when I got mine around Christmas, Shane?

I think I've got her warmed up to the 2nd one now. Last one was 50". This next one is gonna be either 60" or 62".
