If you have the NASA channel on your cable/dish system, they are about to launch the second Mars rover vehicle aboard a Titan Rocket. These things are awsome to watch launch.

If you live in Florida, look up in a few minutes!!!!

You're right about that, Mike! I, too have seen it from this coast. It's an awesome sight to behold.

Of course, being on the Cape for a launch is an unforgettable experience.
