You can watch it live on SpaceVidCast

Go Endeavour, good luck and Godspeed!

Scrubbed :(
NASA wrote:Shuttle launch director Mike Leinbach has scrubbed today’s STS-134 launch attempt because of an issue associated with Auxiliary Power Unit 1 heaters. There will be at least a 72-hour scrub turnaround while engineers assess the issue.

This was actually the first time I've watched it on TV (well, since STS-1 I guess). Thanks to the iPad HDMI cable ;)
