El Pasoan Danny Olivas on Board
Space shuttle "Discovery" launches with el pasoan Danny Olivas on board.
Launch time is scheduled for 11:36pm our time tonight.
Danny Olivas, as you know, is an El Pasoan through and through.
He graduated from Burgess High School then went on to UTEP.
The UTEP alumni Association put together a viewing party in West El Paso.
People there say it's an honor to watch one of their own go up in space.
