Did you miss Star Trek this weekend? No matter! NASA is live-streaming the launch of the space shuttle Atlantis on its mission to fix the Hubble telescope, which is apparently held together with paperclips and string. Astronaut Mike Massimino is even Twittering the whole thing! (Most recent dispatch: "I'm going to put my spacesuit on, next stop: Earth Orbit!!") So much better than watching Kirk and Spock roughhouse around the deck of the Enterprise. Or at least cheaper.
