We Have Liftoff by OpticaLLightspeed We Have Liftoff by OpticaLLightspeed
If I had been a betting man yesterday I would have lost everything including my shirt. I did not believe for one minute that the weather would clear enough to allow us to launch. But about an hour before the scheduled liftoff time the weather did indeed clear enough for NASA to proceed with the final launch in the Shuttle program.
