you have to expect to be rather sensative about weather when your trying to launch something thats shaped like a stick of spagetti, to be honest i keep expecting it to fall over without the service structure

Bet that ship's captain is no longer on NASA's Christmas card list!

look slike it's going to be aclose run thing to use this window in the weather, i assume that having a brand new shiney 300+ft tall white rocket provokes the same rule on clouds as a new shiney telescope
