FALCON 9

Default Space X

Hey fellas,

just inviting you guys to watch the first launch attempt of SPACE X's FALCON 9 down in Cape Canaveral FL.

If successful, we will be the first private company to launch a space craft into outer earth orbit.

http://spacex.com/webcast.php


^that link might not work right this second but hopefully they'll have it up and running before the launch.
the webcast is free and open to the public.

Any idea what time this morning? I need to make sure I'm at my desk.

EDIT - Web site says 1100 EST with a four-hour launch window. Nice!

Hmmmm, I never would have figured you for a "science" guy. You're not filling up the tanks with bibles and Rush Limbaugh podcasts, are you?

When are they going to fix the falcon website? We want to see the falcon thing fly.


Is this really live? It says it is, but there is footage about the vehicle itself. Maybe just presenting something to watch.

Edit. Yeah, it's live.

I'm just bitter today. My "big kid" customer is pissing me the **** off.

Besides, I thought I was on the cool end of the poking stick by completely ignoring what this thread is about.....
