I thought it was a bit later as I was gonna nip out to supermarket but seen the countdown so food has to wait now.

Got it on TV cant wait for blast off

We’re having a big synchronised viewing party! Big fan of the Space X launches. We waited for the go on weather though, because we spent 2 hours watching last time only for it to be aborted. Hopefully it all goes well today.

Yeah I caught it just as they got the go for launch, I did the same Wednesday spent ages watching 🤦

Listening to the escape system was interesting as to how it all works

Whooo orbit achieved, now the phasing burns to get it on a transfer to the ISS!

I managed to see it go over at about 22:15 from South East London :rocket: Quite low to the horizon in the south west and definitely didn’t look like a usual satellite going over.

I’ve now seen the past two SpaceX launches go over so rather chuffed :nerd_face:

A bit conflicting for me this. On the one hand Elon Musk is such a deeply unpleasant personality/negative influence on the world that I instinctively don’t want to support any company he’s attached to. On the other hand SPACE IS COOL! Plus it’s almost a given that the $$$ being spent on these rockets will lead to tech that benefits all of us.

(But my overall feeling is mainly just space is cool.)
