it's launching on the 16th!...now launch it at 16:16:16, with 16 astronauts in attendance, and one of them must be named Sean Murry.

It's rare that a spaceflight milestone occurs earlier than planned.

Umm, guys? About that.

Liftoff is unchanged and is the 29th. Unfortunately the launch window does not care if you are ahead of schedule.

Update: oh no! It's tipping over!
It's falling into the swamp and sinking!
The crane we sent after it has also tipped over and sunk into the swamp!

Foiled again by Florida...

This gives them a little extra time to fix anything they find wrong when they get to the pad.

bingethinker: This gives them a little extra time to fix anything they find wrong when they get to the pad.


Problems all the way back to green run seem to have been valves and pipes for fuel.  And not always on the rocket.

I wonder if the extra height and added stress and cooling wasn't accounted for, or something.  "It worked on shuttle, should be fine.  What do you mean there's an extra stack and it's taller?  It's basically shuttle, just do it."

Please tell me nobody is that dumb.  That would be like some idiot forgetting metric vs imperial.
