Discovery Space Shuttle Launches Today - Watch It Live!

Watching a space shuttle launch is always very fascinating.  It's a wonderful way to interest a child in space and science learning.  It can also be a bit nerve-wracking.  If you are of the generation, like I am, who remembers the black-out moments when the newly launched rockets would return to earth and all communications were cut off for a very loooong minute or so.  Then, splash!  They would safely splash down.  Not every mission has been successful.  Missions like Apollo 13 met what could have been a tragic end but was not with almost all of America praying for their safe returns.  Another shuttle exploded in the skies on January 28.  Others have had close calls.  Let's hope and pray this one that is launched today is safe and successful in their mission.

Watch live here!

Enjoy the launch!
