What an amazing Christmas Present :D a part of me thinks NASA delayed it on-purpose just so it would launch today.

Anybody know whether all those ground crew at mission control get paid overtime for launching on a Saturday and a holiday? Will they be heading home to their families later today?

Everyone just forget that this thing still has two weeks full of deployments before the thing WORKS and just enjoy the fact they're actually doing it :D

Another 2 weeks after that to get to L2, and then 5 months of finishing the full commissioning of the satelllite, will be all about aligning the optics and calibrating the scientific instruments.
