(Rocket Launch Live)   Firefly's much delayed "To the Black" will try to launch at 3:01 AM ET. Sorry to disappoint everyone, but Kaylee (Jewel Staite) got canned. We will see if Bester (Walter Koenig) can get it done. UPDATE: Kicked back another day   (rocketlaunch.live) divider line

Nice.

Second stage separated and ignited. Fairings separated as well.

So far so good it appears.  Not exactly the operation SpaceX has, but they are getting the important things right so far.

This is looking really good.

/Yet another launch the fog of Vandenberg partially hides.

There are getting video from the second stage, which is cool.

One of the smartest things SpaceX did was putting cameras on their rockets. Everyone else has realized that that's the way to capture the public's interest.

Waiting for the signal to be picked up by the Hawaii tracking station.

Hawaii has the vehicle, but haven't got a video feed yet.

It went out of range just at seco 1, wonder if there was an issue during seco that interfered with its ability to downlink over Hawaii.

Video back, great news!

Bhaughbb: Video back, great news!


And some really nice vid until it dropped below the horizon of the tracking station.

Well, I'll check in again in the morning.

That role showed he hadn't been typecast.

I liked how he made use of the light and cheerful attitude of Chekov with cheerful attitude of the complete psycho Bester.

Chekov's statements about how everything was invented in Russia takes on a different tone when you consider Walter's father was a real commie that immigrated from Russia.  Walter did a number of roles in the cold war that showed communist in a very bad light.

Checking after some sleep: They deployed their cargo and are claiming 100% mission success.

Their next mission is Carbonite-4. [Insert Star Wars joke here]

ABL Space should make its first attempt this month. Relativity makes its first shot later in the year.
