Cablers Cover Atlantis Launch (and Pentagon Briefing)

The space shuttle Atlantis launched today at 2pmET and the cablers covered it live. But occurring simultaneously was Defense Secretary Robert Gates holding a briefing, and naming a new Afghanistan commander (CNN went with a double box for most of the launch). Although the networks have moved on to other news, you can check out continuing coverage, anchored by former CNNer Miles O’Brien, on SpaceflightNow.com:
