The European Space Agency’s Rosetta mission is now on the launch pad, and it should be heading up into space early tomorrow. If you’ve got some free time and a connection to the Internet, why not watch the launch live on your computer? I really enjoy watching the launches live, since there’s still a quite a bit of suspense. You also get a sense of the various tasks that need to be performed to get a spacecraft off the ground. The launch is scheduled for early Thursday, February 26 at 0736 UTC (2:36 am EST). I know, that’s the middle of the night for a lot of you, but if you’re a night owl, tune it in.
