How To: Watch the Final Space Shuttle Launch Online

Weather permitting, tomorrow marks the final launch for NASA's space shuttle program. At 11:36 a.m. EDT, the shuttle Atlantis will take off from the Kennedy Space Center for a 12-day mission to the International Space Station, marking the final trip to space for NASA's shuttle fleet. Thanks to technology, you don't have to head to Cape Canaveral to view the launch (though it could be a very geeky trip).
