    In a message dated 7/26/05 2:37:54 PM Eastern Daylight Time, 
    << I think shuttle launched around 1439z, but I looked around  NASA site
    and could not find that info.  anyone know the official time.
    I heard a commentator on MSNBC, just as they were getting ready to come
    of the nine-minute hold, that NASA made a slight adjustment to the
    liftoff time 
    of six seconds and that they were now aiming for a launch "straight-up
    10:39 a.m. EDT"  I assume that "straight up" meant 10:39:00, as opposed
    It seems that MSNBC adjusted their on-screen clock for this, because
    indeed was about a six-second difference between their clock and those
    of CNN 
    and FOX.  
    Once they got below 9 minutes, all three networks trained their cameras
    the big countdown clock at KSC as the "official" time.
