Simonyi pre-launch news

A Soyuz spacecraft carrying fifth orbital space tourist Charles Simonyi is scheduled to lift off today at 1:31 pm EDT. The launch will be aired on NASA TV and possibly might be picked up by the cable news channels. There is not much news about the launch, expect for the usual coverage about Martha Stewart, a “close friend” of Simonyi, who is i Baikonur to watch the launch. (No word if she plans to do some redecorating of the drab spaceport while she’s there, although she did declare that “Baikonur is beautiful.”)
