PAO: T-1 minute 30 seconds and counting. Everything going smoothly as we look forward to lift-off of 41-C. T-1 minute 15 seconds… the liquid hydrogen tank at flight pressure… Coming up on the one-minute point in our countdown. T-1 minute and counting. The firing system for the sound suppression water system is armed. The hydrogen igniters under the orbiter’s engines have been armed. These devices assure that any hydrogen flowing through the engines does not accumulate. T-45 seconds, just 14 seconds away from switching command of the countdown to the onboard computers. T-35 seconds… the gaseous oxygen vent arm fully retracted and we are switching command to the onboard computers. The SRB hydraulic power units have started. T-20 seconds, T-17… 16… 15… 13… 12… 11… 10. We are go for main engine start… 8… 7… 6… we have main engine start… 3… 2… 1… solid motor ignition and lift-off. Lift-off of Challenger and the first flight to repair a satellite in space. We have cleared the tower.
