Just a few minutes to go, hit up the source link for more info or follow after the break for a live stream. SpaceX has been having all sorts of problems with Falcon 9
, so it could always hit another snag, but it's always fun to try and catch a glimpse of live streamed space flight.
It hit another snag. The rocket went into "safe mode" right before launch due to some shutdown condition. There's still the possibility of a later launch, however, so we'll keep you posted.
Supposedly they're going to try again
with a 2:45 launch. Fingers crossed!
And there she goes!
They achieved earth orbit! Major milestone for private and commercial space exploration: congratulations, SpaceX.
