The Juno mission (heading for Jupiter) is about to go up!

Watch the launch live!   (currently scheduled for 12:25 pm, Friday)

Thanks, Marty, for the heads-up!

Edited to add: the launch went off just fine. There’s something inexplicably thrilling about watching a launch in real time. The few moments when the data link was lost were nervous-making, and the relief when it came back was all out of proportion for the amount of time I’ve been paying attention to Juno.
