The weather looks good so far, and it's going to be a 2:30 AM launch.
That's going to be cool, I'll definitely drive down and watch it even if I get no sleep because of it.
Not sure if I'll ever get to see a night launch again.

Hey Dope! it doesn't launch until @2:30 am
All seven astronauts gave a thumbs-up as they boarded the van for the ride to the launch pad late Monday. "All right, here we go!" said commander Dominic Gorie. "Wooo!" shouted his co-pilot, Gregory Johnson.

Earlier in the evening, NASA filled Endeavour's external fuel tank; everything went exactly as planned.

Good weather was forecast for the 2:28 a.m. (0628 GMT) liftoff. It will be the first shuttle launch in darkness since 2006; only a quarter of all shuttle flights have begun at nighttime. It also will be NASA's longest space station mission: 16 days.

It's funnier than Bob Kelly.

I say give Andrew from Brooklyn the rotating 3rd mic. It'd be fucking awesome. He needs his own show, or sit in with Than and Sam.
