Launch got scrubbed at the last minute, so you didn't miss much. Apparently Air Force RADAR went down.

Try again tomorrow at the same time (6:10pm EST), though weather may be an issue.

I've always casually paid attention to what SpaceX is up to, but I had no idea they were this far along. I'll post a few articles and videos, but here are the high points:
  • It's a three-stage system, and their goal is that ALL THREE will be 100% reusable, dramatically reducing the cost of space flight.
  • The crazy thing about that is that the three stages will all land themselves on land (no splashdowns, no parachutes) right back at the launch site.
  • The passenger module can handle up to seven crew at a time (compared to 3 for the Soyuz), again increasing the ability to move people back and forth easily.
  • As you might imagine, the technology in this thing is way beyond the Shuttle or Soyuz, so in theory, it'll be considerably safer since it can handle more situations automatically.

Here's the announcement page from SpaceX to get you started.

http://www.spacex.com/news/2014/05/3...ned-spacecraft




And here's a general CNN article from CNN with some videos. I'll try and post the good ones.

Here's an animation of the capsule re-entry and landing:


OMG?!?!?! You mean we'll actually reach earth orbit again in 2016 because of our incredible effort under Obama to return to space!

It's looking like it will probably be 2017-2018 at this point just because of scheduling, but yes. And hopefully shortly after we'll actually break orbit again. It's been too long.

For those who don't follow it very closely, this will be attempt #2 at landing the first-stage rocket vertically on a barge in the middle of the ocean. Last one was the first time they'd tried it, and they got close...



It's not quite as exciting but, by coincidence, the CRS-5 capsule returning from ISS will be splashing down in the ocean around 40 minutes after this one launches.

Busy day for SpaceX.

Winds are too strong up high at the moment. Seems like every time they do one of these things at a time I can watch, they get postponed.

Always a big letdown when they have to scrub.
