I'm gonna pass on watching this one. I'd rather not see it crash & burn live, if it does.

Since that's always a risk with a lunch of any kind, I guess you never watch any at all!

Watching rockets take off makes my hair stand up most of the time. Seeing and hearing the Shuttle blast off .. makes me cry. LOL I'm not kidding. I'm glued to the screen for any kinda launch I've got time to watch... But I just don't want to see this one blow up. I guess it means that much to me :)

In the past when the launch has been delayed, the video feed also starts late. But at least they would be updating on the web page.

Perhaps the horrible weather is everywhere today. Florida, here in Washington, the middle of the Pacific...ungh!

I'll keep waiting. In the meantime, I'll keep working on a pork roast for dinner.

I had planned to watch the Shuttle lift off over steaks off the grill for me and the wife, some steamed broccoli and cauliflower and a cold beer to wash it all down.

Dinner was good.



IS ANYONE GOING TO SPACE TODAY?!?!?!?

Pork roast with shallots and Yukon gold potatoes, basted with olive oil and some white wine.

ANYWAYS.

Good to see some sort of update, no matter how minute.

If this launch is successful, then it would represent the opportunity for a vast amount of money to head in the direction of SpaceX. It would be the first time a privately developed launch vehicle placed a commercial payload into orbit, and in my opinion, would usher in a new era of space transportation. So, no pressure, SpaceX. I sure hope it's a success.
