Good! Thunder/lightning was why they had to scrub the SpaceX launch last week.

Okay, I put on " Soothsayer"  right when the countdown was at 7 minutes. Excuse me while I brace for epic.

When I clicked on the link, I heard a female voice dictating the launch of a giant dildo. Is this Airplane 3?
 
2014-07-01 05:50:05 AM  
This is still fun to watch.
 
2014-07-01 05:51:43 AM  
I haven't watched a launch in years... over a decade at least. I went to Space Camp as a kid in 87 right smack in the middle of when the shuttle launches were still on hiatus and I became kind of disenfranchised.

Decados: Vandenberg


Thanks. I have to go to Florida later today and was getting ready to be mad that I had pulled a Maxwell Smart.

Is that a gremlin I see on the external tank?

Vandenberg is for launching Satellites only. There is no Launching at Canaveral.

Why does it have to be Vandenberg?


I believe it relates to the need to have the payload go into a polar orbit.

aaaaand...looks like a possible scrub.

Ambivalence: Why does it have to be Vandenberg?


Time...launch is at 2:56 am local
 
2014-07-01 05:57:40 AM  
Hold.  No water flow..demmitt..
 
2014-07-01 05:58:02 AM  
Somebody didn't pay the water bill.
 
2014-07-01 05:58:05 AM  
Dammit, who forgot to pay the F*ing pad water bill?
 
2014-07-01 05:58:18 AM

2014-07-01 05:58:42 AM  
They just said the launch would not be occurring! ARRRGH!
 
2014-07-01 05:58:49 AM  
Forgot to pay water bill.
 
2014-07-01 05:59:01 AM  
30 second launch window? Doh.

Scrubbed. Dammit

It's Obama's fault. All that money he directed to Obamacare instead of NASA!!!11!!1!

Decados: aaaaand...looks like a possible scrub.


No, I don't want no scrub
A scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me
Hanging out the passenger side
Of his best friend's ride
Trying to holler at me

the8re: 30 second launch window? Wow. Oh well. Back to work. Nothing to see here folks.


Why such a short launch window?
 
2014-07-01 06:02:45 AM  
Well... Off to finish getting ready for work.
 
2014-07-01 06:03:03 AM  
I guess that is just a big no-go for launch.

Very scrubbed.  Now locking down the vehicle for an indefinite wait period.  Damn.

2014-07-01 06:09:03 AM  
somebody run out there and bang on the stuck water valve with a wrench.
