From NASA Television on YouTube – MSL launch from this morning.
Right now, MSL’s Centaur stage is performing a burn which will take it out of Earth’s orbit and on its way to Mars. NASA TV is showing some great video from the Centaur stage…it’s about to separate from the spacecraft. EDIT: MSL just separated from its Centaur! Woo hoo! It’s on its way to Mars now!
