Alberto Saldamando of El Mundo Tech covered the liftoff (writing for Piensa Digital), which he shot on a digital camera like thousands of others there. Before, he posed Mario next to some type of NASA building (edit: this is the Shuttle's vehicle assembly building) well away from the actual launch site.

Video (including NASA's in-flight cameras) at the link.
