This XPrize/Space.com videostream is really choppy... you know what this means? It means just as SS1 ignites its engine we'll loose the connection and we'll only get it back as SS1 makes final approach at the airport!! <br /><br />LOL!! Sorry I shouldn't tempt fate... <img src="/images/icons/laugh.gif" />
natrium, ya da man!!!<br /><br />It wasn't on NASA TV's special programming schedule when I checked. <br /><br />Think I'm gonna stay with NASA now! Thanks <img src="/images/icons/smile.gif" /> <br /><br />Its a 291K stream rather than X-Prize's 90K stream. <br /><br />Course everyone's gonna switch to it now!! <img src="/images/icons/smile.gif" />
Yeah I know, I was just making a point that I missed it with that poor X-Prize videostream.<br /><br />The commentator's a Brit, but she should have read up on the area before taking the job. LOL, but its the same with all the commentators! <img src="/images/icons/smile.gif" />
So did it work? I can't get the SDC main site to load. I was so nervous! On Wednesday i ditched math to watch the launch but I felt I really couldn't afford to do it again so I spent the entire hour in a state of panic. But since nobody seems to be in a state of mourning right now I'm guessing nothing bad happened! What a relief!
I got to watch it on Fox down in the break room. There were a couple of times when the wings did some rocking during the firing, made me a little nervous, but I am somewhat of a nervous nelly at times like this.<br /><br />Wayne <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p>"1) Give no quarter; 2) Take no prisoners; 3) Sink everything."

Great stuff!!<br /><br />Question now is, is there really any aerodynamic issue with SpaceShipOne or was it just wind shear or was it just something that Melvill accidently did during the previous flights. Melvill is still a super pilot!!!
