The space shuttle Atlantis has been in space 32 times since 1985, and orbited the earth 4,648 times, but she's about to make her last journey.

Unless you are one of the one million people flocking to Florida today to see the shuttle launch, you're going to need an alternative. Luckily, there are quite a few options.

Let's start with the basics.

The famed shuttle is scheduled to launch at 11:26 am, weather permitting.

If you are by a computer, you can head over to NASA TV for their live stream of the launch. Live coverage began at 8 a.m. local time, so they are up and rolling as you read this.

If you are going to be away from your computer, NASA offers iPhone and iPad apps that will stream the launch coverage. There is also a new Android app, check it out.

For the multitaskers out there, you can also be on the lookout for up-to-the minute coverage on Twitter by following the official NASA twitter feed (@NASA) and the Kennedy Space Center's (@NASAKennedy).

Oh, or you could watch it on your TV the old-fashioned way. Most networks will cover the launch live.

Better yet, you can just watch the live feed here:
