    I found this really interesting and have been looking forward to this in the last few weeks and because this is live I thought maybe some other people would like to know about this so they can watch it live if they have the chance.

    Tomorrow on Discovery Channel/Science Channel.
    On Monday, May 11, the space shuttle Atlantis is scheduled to leave Earth on an ambitious mission to repair the Hubble Space Telescope and significantly improve its ability to probe the depths of space.

    More information can be found on the Discovery website:

    Thanks for the 'heads up' on this. I always enjoy astronomy based programs like this. I'll try and write to you on our friends list or pm afterward. Have a good one!:smile:

    :biggrin: not following you around Shades, its just I like the threads that you have posted on.......

    Yes being a bit of a space nut myself I too will be watching together with the above link - you can also see the launch on NASA`s TV channel

    Java needs enabling for the above to work, but most folks will have that already.
