    I love watching launches. I've been to the US once and we were in Florida. There was a launch scheduled when we were then but was cancelled due to Hurricane Floyd. Gutted.

    If you fancy performing your own launch, check this out:

    :: Space Shuttle Mission Simulator(tm) ::

    The process to launch/dock/land is exactly what the pilots go through. My mate had a massive document which explained step by step how to go though the process. He spent a few hours going through it. If I remember right, his angle was too great during launch and the shuttle flipped and exploded.
