Very good. I was really hoping this would have launched on time. Can't hang on any more, night night. Bet it lifts off any minute now, straight after I log off ?

Yes, I bet it does!

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.

I remember back in 1981 I think, first Shuttle launch and we were all crowded round the big school TV on the trolley waiting for launch. It got delayed for a while, to another day and we missed it I think.

Tomorrow at 1:00 p.m. Pacific Time!

If my son had gone to see it I would have joined him, but just as well after all!

We are about 4-5 hours from Vandenberg AFB.

Let's all meet up again tonight then, hopefully we'll get to see the launch. All this fuss for about a 4min live video as the National Rec Office have said the video stream will go off before the fairings stop off.

It's a date Peter. Only 4 mins, but worthwhile.

I'm looking forward to the Falcon Heavy launch, so 25th Jan could be good, with FH and an Ariane 5 on the same day, potentially.

I noticed the mission description said nothing about the payload aside from the length of the fairing. Clearly the 'reconnaissance' payload is classified.
