Not sure if anyone is interested and it's pretty late notice but there are live feeds of the last Shuttle mission being streamed right now 10:30pm 16/5/11 until liftoff around 12pm tonight. 

Currently the shuttle is being crewed and doing pre-flight i presume.

Watch it here: http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/index.html

Thanks for the link, watching it now. What's the saying - I love hard work, I could watch it all day.

Thanks for the reminder. What a great launch. Definitely some tension on the ground an in the commentary from the earlier delays.

I feel sorry for the many guys and gals around ksc (9000 approx) that are looking at redundancy with the retirement of the current vehicle. Hope everything works out ok for them.

Yeah, I saw at least a couple of the astronauts take badges and stuff off the ground crew and thanking them a little more than they seem to normally. I assumed that was due to the shuttle retirement.
