That ET footage was fantastic- did you see the SSME plume growing during assent - and the RCS firing, along with the OMS burn just after ET sep - it was brilliant - good to see that they cleared the issue they had with the SRB-Sep motors fogging the camera from the last time they did this.

I'm not a fan of ISS/Shuttle - BUT - you cant help but be in awe of it all when it goes right.

God speed the crew of Discovery.

STS-114 Launch... as seen from 40 miles south of the pad.... south of Melbourne Beach.
It was a bit hazy, plus moving to the NE away... so not too clear a view. Next time I think I'll drive up the coast.

spaceflightnow are reporting debris breaking off the external tank at SRB seperation.

1512 GMT (11:12 a.m. EDT)

T+plus 33 minutes. A few seconds after solid rocket booster separation, a large chunk of something broke free from the external fuel tank. The onboard video camera mounted on the tank showed the object flying away from the vehicle without striking Discovery.
