Hooray for Space Shuttle Atlantis/STS-115/12A!

They finally made the launch. The ECO sensors finally worked (I would expect that NASA's trying to tear that problem apart - this is the 2nd time in 3 flights where ECO sensors have delayed launch).

Of course, the real reason why they launched today was because if they didn't, I would have had to go to work on console next week. It was really my schedule constraints that drove the entire launch decision. ;*)

Note: As I said before, this flight is a really big deal for the ISS. To see why, look at this timeline illustration. You can also see the complexity of the P3/P4 segment in the "Station Construction Animation" link in on the page.
