    Go SpaceX!!!!!

    That was so awesome! Much needed literal uplift in a time of such seeming darkness.
    It was beautiful to watch, and I loved how they had the tandem shot of Bob & Doug in the Dragon while the Falcon 9 touched back down perfectly.
    So so so awesome!

    PS...Go America, too!

    The mission still has a long way to go, but the launch was a lot more flawless than CNNís coverage of it.

    That was really awesome. My older kid is roughly the same age as I was at the time of Challenger so I was hesitant to let him watch, but I'm glad I did. Safe travels to the crew. Will they be broadcasting the docking tomorrow morning?

    I remember watching the coverage of Challenger in the Phi Kap section (first floor Wilson House). Still vivid.

    I believe the answer that question is an emphatic, "YES! He is!"

    Best quote of the coverage I saw, "This mission will either be a successful launch, or a failure". Ya think?

    Someone should tell that person there is more than one type of failure.

    Weather delays, for instance, are much better than rapid unscheduled disassembly.

    They left Earth. Good choice right about now.

    They will have live coverage of the docking with the ISS at 10:29 am EDT this morning.

    Yeah. As far as I know, no muder hornets in space.

    Murder hornets were just a diversionary tactic by the animal kingdom to distract us from the real danger:

    Virus-pilfering monkeys.

    Canning the Space Shuttle was the best choice. I was a bit angry at the time, but the things SpaceX has been able to do are just amazing. Whoever thought we'd see reusable rockets!

    The costs SpaceX has been able to hit are really game changing. Their ride sharing is also quite amazing and giving smaller businesses access to space they might not have had before.

    To be honest, I'm more looking forward to the new Mars Rover set to launch in a few months. THAT thing is cool (60 minutes last night).
