NASA just announced that the Shuttle is go for a launch at 5:02 p.m. Eastern time on May 31 to go to -- where else? -- the space station. This will be a 14 day mission that includes three scheduled space walks to work on the Japanese lab module.

If I can (and I don't see why not) I'll live-Twitter the launch as usual.

Speaking of which-- is anyone out there in BABlogland using Bebo? I just signed up, and much like Facebook and MySpace, I don't see much reason for it to exist just yet.
