I really tried to watch the launch(es) of the Anomalous Transit Rocket Experiment (ATREX). On several different occasions, I fired up the Wallops video feed, only to disconnect it a few minutes or a few hours later when the launch was scrubbed once again. In the end, I missed the launch of the five sounding rockets—getting up at 4:00 a.m. doesn’t sound like quite as good of an idea to me now as it did when I was a teenager. So, like the rest of the world, I have to make myself happy with the photos and videos circulating around the Internet. So far, my favorite images come from NASA’s Earth ObservatoryA Barrage of a Launch.
