Live launches are cool.  NIGHT launches are even cooler.  Live, night, historic launches are breathtaking.  Check it out with the link below.

Update:  It’s 9:38 pm Mountain time and if you’ve just clicked the link, it’s dark but it’s there.  The link works fine.

Update: 3:03–Launch was aborted at ignition because the Engine 5 chamber pressure was high.  Because the planned rendezvous of Dragon with the ISS involves so many manuvers that there is not enough fuel aboard the capsule for additional catchup time so that there is only launch or no launch with no room for a countdown hold.  The launch has been rescheduled for Tuesday morning.  More detailed info later this morning.

  1. I seldom leave a response, however i did some searching and wound up
    here Watch the SpaceX Launch Live on UStream | Bill
    Housley. And I actually do have a couple of questions for you
    if it’s allright. Is it just me or does it look like a few of these comments come across like they are written by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are posting at other sites, I’d
    like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Could
    you list of every one of all your communal
    sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  2. Watching a launch on Lagstream is not cool at all. You get 3 seconds, then it stalls, and in all likeliness it’ll only stop lagging past MECO. Abysmal performance, but then again at least they take the time to show the world not to ever count on their service.
