Antares Takes Cygnus To The ISS

Thanks again to this amazing thing that is the Internet I was able to watch a real-time launch, from different angles including a couple of onboard cameras, of another NASA rocket from across the continent.

This one was an Antares rocket, launched from their facility at Wallops Island, Virginia, delivering the Cygnus spacecraft on a demonstration resupply mission to the International Space Station.

I remember a time when the only way I could have seen any of this was as special effects in a movie. Now all I need is any device with an Internet connection.
