STS-126 Endeavour launch Liftoff

All went well, and they are well on course for joining the International Space Station…. I know this has nothing to do with UFOs, but i am still fascinated with space, and all that it entails.

I forgot to also give another link….. see it here . On the right hand side there are alternative views (best for images is windows media player- go to other viewing options, link is there). What’s on will show you times of events…. should be good when it gets to the ISS.

I always get a buzz from watching it live…. great viewing.

For those of you, who missed the liftoff…. below is a 2 min video, by someone who kindly posted it on youtube
