If you have never watched a space shuttle lift off on TV before, the chances for you to do so are at an end. The space shuttle Discovery is set to lift off today on one of the final missions of the shuttle fleet headed to the ISS. If you want to watch the lift off, you can fire up your PS3.
NASA has announced that PS3 owners can hit PlayStation Home and go over to the Sunset Yacht to watch the liftoff along with other users in a social viewing setting with other PlayStation home users. The launch will begin at 4:50 p.m. EST if all goes well.
Users with Bluetooth headsets will be able to watch the launch and talk together as well. The viewing is courtesy of the Sunset Yacht NASA TV channel and if your cable or satellite network has NASA TV, you can view there as well.
