Where/when is the get request sent in this Node.js basics program?
I can understand how all of the code works, but I can't work out where the AJAX 'get' request is actually run/sent. As far as I can tell, the entire AJAX request is stored in a variable and the only function that is run is the 'request.on("error"...' event handler.

http.get is a method that creates the GET request. "response" is what is returned from the server.
