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

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

    1.  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).

      1. 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. 

        1. I don’t think that there’s really such a thing as an obscure MST reference here.

  3. 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.
