    I watched the last few minutes of a press Q&A with the crew this afternoon. Caught a glimpse of a watch bracelet on Bob's arm as he was motioning and wondered if it was the X-33 or something else. Figured you guys would be all over that :).

    My watch interest began after the end of the shuttle program, so if you asked me if I would be trying to figure out what watch an astronaut was wearing during a Q&A, and if it would be worn on the flight, I would have told you that you were nuts. Yet here we are!

    Hmmm... so the Skywalker X-33 is a quartz watch. Is that why there doesn't seem to be much excitement about it yet?

    Plenty of excitement from this owner who was wearing his today and using various functions on it. :)

    That's a Gen 2 X-33 though - not a Skywalker.

    Thrilled to see that the X-33 appears to have made it through to the launch, if it goes ahead!
