There's a cool space launch (Jules Verne) in about 25 minutes if you have NASA TV
or check the site. This isn't a NASA venture, its the European Space Agency's project but NASA is providing television for them

It's pretty close to eastern standard time.

8. Hi. The ATV has been ejected from the Ariane's upper-stage,
so the launch is declared successful. The ATV is now starting to deploy its systems.

I was watching this at the ESA's site: http://www.esa.int/SPECIALS/ATV/SEM35OK26DF_0.html

:hi:
