CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.  --  The Delta II rocket with NASA's Gamma-Ray Large Area Space Telescope , or GLAST, on top is bathed in smoke just after liftoff from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station's Launch Pad 17-B. Liftoff was at 12:05 p.m. EDT. GLAST is a powerful space observatory that will explore the universe's ultimate frontier, where nature harnesses forces and energies far beyond anything possible on Earth;  probe some of science's deepest questions, such as what our universe is made of, and search for new laws of physics; explain how black holes accelerate jets of material to nearly light speed; and help crack the mystery of stupendously powerful explosions known as gamma-ray bursts.  Launch is scheduled for 11:45 a.m. June 11.  Photo credit: NASA/Sandra Joseph, Kevin O'Connel KSC-08pd1631
