Space Man Brad

If you didn't get the email, Mr. G states the following.

"Hi all,

Just a quick mass-email to let you know about the launch of the Herschel space telescope tomorrow morning. Our group has been working on the software for one of the instruments on this satellite for the last 7 years or so. This is a ~$3 billion mission, and much more scientifically important than the Hubble upgrades and shuttle flights that have been in the news over the
last week.

You can see a live webcast of the launch at:

Here is a promo video for it.
