Reminds me of a line from "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy":

"For a moment, nothing happened. Then, after a second or so, nothing continued to happen."

Apparently there are about 20000 people visiting the launch site for this launch - not a bad turnout, although nothing can beat the STS-135 1 million record!  ;)

Live coverage starts soon....
