    Is anyone else staying up to watch it? (if it actually launches :rolleyes:)
    Yeahh, I shall be I'm hoping these storms clear so it launches on time. I did say I was going to get an early night tonight, but it appears as if I'll have to try that out tomorrow instead.

    It must be so frustrating for the astronauts - they've literally been sitting there in the orbiter for hours waiting to launch, and now they've got to go through the hassle of getting out again.

    We won't know it has been completely scrubbed for half an hour?
    Nope, officially scrubbed. They're in the process of shutting down systems now.
