I made a rocket like SN8 when I was about ten years old.  I can understand why SpaceX may be having a few problems today.  I had terrible trouble getting the tin foil to stick to the cardboard tube.

Not sure if anyone else interested in this sort of thing, but in about 30 mins there's a live launch here: http://www.ulalaunch.com/webcast.aspx  

As seen here in this uninterrupted footage from somebody on the ground with an LX200 and some nice tracking software. It's an incredible feat.  The little detail (from the press conference) that

Only a few hours away from the next starlink group of sats going up.




SpaceX is targeting Monday, November 11 at 9:56 a.m. EST, 14:56 UTC, for launch of 60 Starlink satellites from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida. A backup launch opportunity is available at 9:34 a.m. EST, 14:34 UTC, on Tuesday, November 12.

Falcon 9’s first stage supported the Iridium-7, SAOCOM-1A, and Nusantara Satu missions, and the fairing was previously flown on Falcon Heavy’s Arabsat-6A mission earlier this year.

Following stage separation, SpaceX will land Falcon 9’s first stage on the “Of Course I Still Love You” droneship, which will be stationed in the Atlantic Ocean. Approximately 45 minutes after liftoff, SpaceX’s two fairing recovery vessels, “Ms. Tree” and “Ms. Chief,” will attempt to recover the two fairing halves.

It's a shame they don't have on-board cameras like the Space-X ones.  Or if they do, that they don't make them part of the feed.  The on-board stuff is fascinating to watch.

I would say it is all fascinating and great to watch. Never mind watching via an onboard camera, it does make me wonder how long before they allow a passenger and how much it will cost...

Thank you for posting the link. :smiley:

I had to go back to listening to the commentary in French.  The woman doing the English version was driving me nuts and I just had to give up when she started explaining the derivation of the word "telemetry".

I notice that they have a "Chef de Mission".  Most commendable that the French don't skimp on the dining arrangements even for the space programme.
