Well, I sorta lost my pride when they were hunted down by armed tourists

But for Discovery I'm happy NASA got it back up

I have been interested in space since I was something like 10. So yes, I'm really happy that the discovery was succesfully launched. Maybe we'll find some aliens this time?

When the hell did Discovery take off?!?!?! Man, I wanted to watch that. It is people like me that shows no interest in the outside world. I'm very dissapointed in myself for not watching that. Anyone have a live video recorded so I can watch or links????

For those of you that missed it, here's a video clip I found with some coverage of the takeoff. Not much, but something:

Is that seriously the first time a shuttle has gone up since Columbia?
