"Pointy end up, flamey end down."
I love SpaceX.
Scrubbed. Too windy.
Did Spacex actually say that somewhere? That would be funny to use Tim's phrasing.
Everyday Astronaut feed. Not sure if the banner was SpaceX or from the specific feed.
Looking like Thursday at the earliest. There are some flight profile changes being traded among some regulatory hurdles that I'm not familiar with. Apogee might be reduced to 10km from 12.5km.
Regulatory, Schmegulatory. Fire that damn thing up today and send it to 62 miles. (I don’t do that commy metric shit).
Just make sure you fill it full this time so it lands this time.
Elon needs to hire me. Sn11 would have already flown by now if he had.
Oh and when is this damn tank going to pop already. Maybe they should try 2mm so we can see it blow sooner. I mean. Thats the main goal right. Entertaining us
Sometimes I think SpaceX is Elon's equivalent to a model rocket kit for the rest of us.
Yeah, he's just playing Kerbal Space Program with all the realism sliders maxed.
Looking good for today so far.
What time? Is there somewhere we can watch it? thanks
Time is really difficult to say. There's still people on the pad when I looked a few minutes ago, so that typically means it'll still be a couple hours. Might be 6 hours away, hard to tell at this point.
There will be multiple 1st party streams for this. Can search NasaSpaceFlight and they have a live stream going. Everyday Astronaut and Labpadre also have streams of differing types. Spacex will have an official stream that should go live a few minutes before an attempted launch, but again, timing unknown right now.
Prop load around noon local.
Scrub a dub dub, try again tomorrow. No FAA approval for it yet.
Weird stuff going on. Doesn't sound like they have FAA approval yet, but the vehicle looks just about prepped for launch. Could be a different test, but worth checking it out...
Update: Just a test, nothing to see here!
Approval obtained, pointy end up and flamey end down, fingers crossed.
~2hours from launch
Current progression showing that they could be 30 minutes to an hour out.
Light that candle!!! Showing my age as that phrase goes back to the Mercury program ha ha
12 min ish
Then back to Temporary Hold.
Somehow the "ish" would not give me confidence, but I like the humor.
Found people inside the exclusion zone. Truck was stopped by the sheriff and are now hauling butt out of there.
T-8mins or so.....
Separate names with a comma.
