Subby is so negative.

/it could be any number of new and exciting problems

Or just the same old unfixed problem with valves sticking.

Or it could just work, which would confuse Space X fans that they were able to skip the multitudes of exploding prototypes phase.

If it just worked, that would confuse *everyone* - not least of which would be Boeing.

They would have no idea where to go from there.

You must admit, the Space Shuttle did work the first time and the SLS is mostly old Shuttle parts.  Including the leaky H2 valves.

True.  The Shuttle did work the first time.

I suspect the fact that, for the first and only time in the history of the American Space Program, a brand-new launch vehicle on its first full-up test would be carrying *people* had a number of folks scared shiatless.  No one wanted to be "the guy who screwed the pooch" on *that* flight.

And even then, IIRC, it had a number of scrubs before they pulled the trigger on the launch.

The delays meant it launched on a good friend's birthday.  I recorded it (only VHS back then), and edited a copy with the music from the first launch of the Yamato from 'Star Blazers'.  It fit almost perfectly, even the crowd cheering and sound effects.

I've got that transferred to a DVD now, and saved as an .ISO file.
