Spock's Impressions of Discovery's Launch

Editor's note: When asked what his feelings were during the launch of Space Shuttle Discovery this afternoon, Mike Griffin replied that during the launch he was busy "looking at data" and that he was "not aware" of what his feelings were. Later he said "I'll have time for feelings after I am dead."

According to this official NASA photo, Mike Griffin apparently did watch the launch - either that, or everyone is looking at a Jumbotron with "data" outside the windows. In this picture and this picture he's even using binocculars. Hardly the best way to look at "data".

C'mon Mike. This Spock impression schtick is getting to be a little creepy. Admit it - you run the agency more like Scotty. Lighten up.
