The Space Shuttle Discovery is due to launch this evening just before 10pm GMT. We've long been interested in the science behind space travel, and have perused a few launches before. For the first time in Sidepodhistory, we've got a live thread for the launch, as well as what I'm hoping will be quite awesome Factbyte Factbox coverage.

The space shuttle Discovery, ready for launch

The launch can be viewed on a live stream via NASA TV, available here, and NASA are on Twitter as well, although I don't know how comprehensive their coverage will be.
