Things are going very smoothly. As expected, there are some minor glitches, and the eight minutes that it took us to get to orbit, we trained months and months for, and didn't have to use any of that preparation, other than being aware and ready.
We've had such thorough training, we've had an excellent team on the ground.
With the minor glitches that have occurred, we've been able to take care of them. And the teams on the ground are getting tons of incredible data.
A Kindle returns us to the inconvenience of the scroll, except with batteries and electronic glitches. It's as handy as bringing Homer along to recite the 'Iliad' while playing a lyre.
