Cablers Cover Atlantis Launch (and Pentagon Briefing)

By SteveK Comment

The space shuttle Atlantis launched today at 2pmET and the cablers covered it live. But occurring simultaneously was Defense Secretary Robert Gates holding a briefing, and naming a new Afghanistan commander (CNN went with a double box for most of the launch). Although the networks have moved on to other news, you can check out continuing coverage, anchored by former CNNer Miles O’Brien, on SpaceflightNow.com:
