I watched NASA TV for a couple of hours this evening, culminating in the beautiful night launch of the shuttle Endeavour on STS-126. I would sure like to see a night launch in person, but I'm not sure I'll be able to work that out before they retire the shuttles in 2010 (or maybe later if they decide to fund some additional missions, as President-elect Obama had discussed during the campaign - before the current economic crisis). At least I got to see one shuttle launch, which was also Endeavour (on STS-118 back in the summer of 2007). An awesome experience.
