    I wish they could be sure of the launch time. I'd take work off for the last launch, insane crowds be damned.

    If you weren't aware that a shuttle was launching today, you'd shit your pants seeing that!

    For anyone wondering, the clock is supposed to be stopped at 20 minutes - its part of the launch process.

    Cool, heard it was about 4pm. End of an era. I hope the world comes together and builds new stuff to get into space.

    41 minute hold. Then the 9 minute count down continues?

    Have I got that right?

    Sad I didn't make the trip down to see this. Hoping for a few scrubs :)

    Really sad that it's the end of an era.

    Was at the Kennedy Space Centre a few weeks ago and have got the coin for this mission (they produce them for all the missions) here with me. Exciting but sad that it's coming to an end.

    Its in the same category as Concorde. Retired without being superseded by something better.

    Sad times. They're also attempting to cancel (or at least suspend) the JWST, so we'll have no Hubble replacement either.
