Atlantis Soars to a Date with Hubble!

I'm settling in in Houston now. The launch was quite an experience. Along with the visual show, the most memorable sensation was the rumbling and deep crackling sound in the air which reached our viewing site ~20 seconds after launch (given the time for the sound to travel). Here are a few of my raw pics.

Here are some links to reports on the launch. (Standing hat tip to Jeff Foust for saving me the time to search for relevant links.)
