I'm a bit surprised no one's beat me to this. Video of the launch for those who missed it yesterday:

Are rocket launches so boring these days? I was watching it yesterday when I should have been working, and the general feeling in the office was one of apathy. The only person watching it with me was hoping it would blow up.

I've been following the story (no audio at work though). More interesting will be what these new telescopes might reveal about the development of the universe.

Your colleague wouldn't have been wanting an explosion if it were his 1.7 billion quid in the payload!
