NASA's MMS (Magnetospheric Multiscale mission) is launching tonight at 10:44 EST. (Though they're saying t-minus 20 minutes on the video I'm watching. So I'm confused.) Or in a little less than an hour. You can watch it live here on tv. The MMS will be watching the magnetic fields over earth. And also looking quite a bit like an ELO album cover.*

Here is a video that explains just what they hope to learn from the MMS:

I hope you'll all watch the launch with me!

*I sure hope NASA doesn't get sued for copy right infringement.
