    Well done Spacex! Unfortunately to much cloud coverage in so cal. The webcast was fun to watch.
    Launches always make me proud of mankind and optimistic for future space exploration.
    Now back to pinball till next launch.

    The stupid webcast told me it was scrubbed ten minutes before Go. I totally missed it!

    Well I have a few pictures for you...was a pretty cool launch and I am sure you can see videos later of it.

    This is pretty cool seeing the first stage booster separated to land on the drone ship for future use.

    Not sure what planet that is on the right...anyone know?
    The last picture you can see both the booster rocket below and the stage two rocket aiming for orbit above.

    That would have been Jupiter. Thanks for the pics!

    Same here.

    #61 1 year ago

    I just watched it, makes me proud to be an American. I hope I live to see the BFR take off. I'd go see that take off.

    #62 1 year ago

    That BFRrocket is huge! Yeah I will get a lot closer for that one!

    Closer I don't think so, not with the engines that monster is gonna have.

    #64 1 year ago

    Well I’m just saying I’m not very close to vandenberg

    #66 1 year ago

    Next launch:

    MAR 20 08:08 Falcon 9 SLC-4E Vehicle will launch Iridium Next commercial communications satellites 41-50. Liftoff occurs well after sunrise, but the rocket's bright orange flame could be visible for more than 100 miles.

    FEB? To be
    announced Minuteman III --- Vehicle will fly a ballistic trajectory. Delayed from FEB 6-7*

    *missile still planned to launch but no date given since it was cancelled.

    2 weeks later
    #67 1 year ago

    They have changed the date

    MAR 29 07:19:49 Falcon 9 SLC-4E Vehicle will launch Iridium Next commercial communications satellites 41-50. Liftoff occurs after sunrise, but the rocket's bright orange flame could be visible for more than 100 miles.

    Watched the heavy lift out of Kennedy again.
    The 2 rockets landing back on pads in tandem is almost science fiction.

    #69 1 year ago

    I have watched several times as well. Like Elon said so real it looks fake

    #70 1 year ago

    They should name the next rocket after Stephen Hawking.

    #71 1 year ago

    Working at Kennedy Space Center, we get to see them up CLOSE:

    #72 1 year ago

    Great pictures , Thanks.
    To date, one of the highlights of my life was the pilgrimage to Kennedy to see Space Shuttle Discovery launch, both trips.

    #73 1 year ago

    Great pictures. It just blows my mine that some people say this is fake even though thousands and thousands of people saw it first hand.

    1 week later
    #74 1 year ago

    Delayed till 7:08 a.m. on Saturday. Some problem with one of the satellites.

    Iridium 5. The view from SLO

    I agree, but something significant like the first city on the moon.

    I missed that they moved it up a day....glad you caught it

    #79 1 year ago

    I didn't find out until about 15 minutes before launch.

    #80 1 year ago

    MAY 5 04:05-06:05 Atlas V SLC-3E Vehicle will send the Mars InSight spacecraft and two communications relay satellites to Mars. If the launch occurs before dawn, it could be visible for more than 300 miles.

    This one should be impressive...we’re shooting for Mars!

    #81 1 year ago

    Successful launch

    #82 1 year ago
    Quoted from Pinballlew:

    Successful launch

    Nice. I heard a little bit on NPR yesterday about the probes, way cool.

    #83 1 year ago

    Crud , I did not look to see when new launch was to take place. Missed it.

    #84 1 year ago

    Just got home from the launch. I sat on console watching telemetry data back here at Kennedy Space Center. There were some problems early in the countdown, but ULA was able to work around and get the launch off on time. This being a planetary mission we only have a few weeks to launch or have to wait another couple of years for the next window to Mars. Insight was already delayed from a couple of years ago. Atlas V is still an awesome rocket. That makes 78 out of 78 Atlas V launches with mission success!

    #85 1 year ago

    You had fun, lucky. GREAT Atlas record. Now hope the spacecraft works right.

    #86 1 year ago

    We did get up to watch it. It was easily visible from SoCal. It wasn’t a spectacular thing though, just a small glow that hauled ass up and to the south. Nothing like that Trident they launched from a sub off the coast a few years ago, that was something really impressive to see in the sky.

    Been awhile since I have updated this thread but this should be a cool launch and if in California you will probably hear the sonic boom.

    OCT 7 19:21 Falcon 9 SLC-4E Vehicle will launch Argentina's SAOCOM-1A satellite. A preliminary analysis by Rick Baldrige indicates the rocket's exhaust plume will be illuminated by the sun around the time of stage 2 ignition. An attempt will be made to have the jettisoned first stage make a powered soft landing at Vandenberg.

    #88 1 year ago

    Yes thanks for posting this.

    If there's video could you post a link?

    Will be watching. Thank you for for posting.

    It’s a SpaceX launch so I bet it will be live on their website. SpaceX.com

    I just can't believe that some people STILL say this is fake.

    I am not sure what you mean???
    Also, why the thumbs down for John_I posting a link above?

    Oh yeah people have been posting videos saying how we have never been in space and the whole Space X is fake. Google the subject.

    Sorry about that I must have hit the thumbs down by mistake.

    Thanks. It is amazing how ignorant some of the skeptics and conspiracy theorists can be.
    If SpaceX was faking it, wouldn't the Russians, Chinese or NASA show that it was a ruse? The same thing with the man on the moon skeptics.
    Also, Russia would have also either gone to the moon or faked it if it was that easy to get away with faking.

    A couple of the funnier "facts" about rocket launches and the new Space X landings are that they are 3d projections and the souns come out of giant speakers that are hidden fro view. Now that's just plain stupid and other people believe them.

    A couple of shots of Sunday's launch from my porch. Keep 'em coming, Space men!

    Cool thread... thanks for sharing. Reminds me of my time in the 90's living in the "space coast" of Florida and watching all the shuttle launches. Good times....
