VIDEO: Watch the LRO/LCROSS Launch! (NASA, Moon, 6/18/09)

The wait is over! Under cloudy skies LRO and LCROSS thundered into the atmosphere enroute to the moon. Watch this bystander video and hear how the sound of the rocket blast affects the audio. You can also hear the whoops of delight from the enthusiastic crowd. How cool is this???
