AGILE launched!

I hear that the Italian space mission AGILE was successfully launched from India at 12:00 CEST. AGILE (I think this is pronounced a-jee-lay) is an X-ray and gamma-ray imaging spacecraft which is considered to be like a bigger version of EGRET or a smaller version of NASA's GLAST spacecraft (due for launch no earlier than December this year). Buona fortuna AGILE.
