    Son of a gun, I hope they pull this damn thing off.

    I think they are showing the launch on NASA TV too.  I’m gonna stay up late and check it out.

    Noones getting the joke.  This is a set from an unaired Gerry Anderson pilot.  I’m the only one who noticed this?

    Cool. At least they got the dragon in to orbit.  Yay.

    I sure hope TSA got to frisk someone’s balls first.

       Since there were no passengers on this flight, I think the TSA was SOL this time. 

      (And I’m not talking about the Satellite of Love if you catch my drift).

        To make the obligatory (?) obscure MST3K reference, I was reminded of the time Mike broke the Hubble when I saw an animation of Dragon docking with ISS since it’s got solar panels like Hubble and ISS is going to grab it with the robotic arm.

    A very pretty launch though not as loud as the STS launches. Didn’t even rattle my windows.

    The wife and I woke up our 4 year old to watch it from the lawn here in Orlando.  All part of our not so subtle conditioning attempts to create an astronaut.
