Successful Shuttle Launch

Atlantis STS-117 just had engine cutoff and is in orbit.

An absolutely beautiful launch! No technical issues, no unexpected holds. The biggest problem was fog in Zaragoza, Spain. (That's one of the trans-Atlantic abort sites in case of emergency, in case you're wondering why NASA cares about fog in Spain.) Well done to the whole team.
