Watch the Rosetta Launch Live

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.
