[UPDATE (22:00 GMT): LRO launched successfully at 21:32 GMT, delayed 20 minutes by weather. Everything looks great so far!]

Reminder: LRO (NASA's latest Moon probe) is due to launch today at 17:12 Eastern time (21:12 GMT). There are two more launch windows today, one at 17:22 and the other at 17:32. Follow the news on Twitter from NASA itself, from the LRO feed, the LCROSS feed, or from me. I'm sure the launch will be on NASA TV as well.
