11 July 2005 (Launch + 1)
Ten very happy people stand on a swath of grass, blinding the camera with the reflection of their smiles, thumbs held upward with glee.
Good orbit, good telemetry, all systems green. It doesn't get any better. The launch site portion of the XRS team (as always, really only a portion of that portion) poses outside the USC administration building after a rousing post-launch celebration. Note the flags signifying the international cooperation that made this success possible.
