NASA Education (the one I get on my cable system) is running NASA Edge (trying to present rocket science at a 2nd grade reading level) as their launch coverage, so we have a guy "dramatizing" the clean room environment by sitting at their viewing deck in a plastic bubble.  At least it's not as bad as the cartoon TV talk show they run, where the real guests are portrayed as animated cartoon characters and interviewed by 8-year-olds, also done as cartoons.

They just tried to compare the cold of the cryo propellants vs. the heat of the rocket engine as "The Human Torch vs. Mr. Freeze."  Complete with comic book panels.

And ooops -- somehow I had the T-0 time as 9:15pm, I was off by 30 minutes.  Post edited.

Lots of people to view the launch at Port Canaveral. Forgot my camera and the phone just doesn't has the juice for a good picture.
