For those who enjoy watching launches, here is a summary of places to get 
information on upcoming (and/or recent) launches.  Many of these were culled 
from the Florida Today site, which overall seems to be the best place for 
general info.

Please note: for the phone numbers listed for human beings, I have not 
personally checked to see whether or not they answer the phone, or whether 
the number gives you a recorded message.  These are really for press 
information; please exercise discretion if calling these numbers.

If anyone has more sources, please feel share them with us.  In particular, 
does anyone out there know of a source for Notices to Airmen or Notices to 
Mariners?  How about non-US launches?
