Arrow NASA/Space X Joint Venture Launch; LIVE Feed

This is a big moment for Space Travel as we know it.

This will be the first time since the retirement of the Space Shuttles that we will have Astronauts transported to the Space Station from U.S. Soil. This will also be a huge milestone for Private Space Travel Ventures.



The Launch is set for 12:15 p.m. EDT; Meaning it will be launching in just over 1 hour 30 mins. since the time I post this thread.

Cancelled due to weather. Too bad, but better safe than sorry with this. Bad weather is no joke for anything flying through the atmosphere.

Edit: Ah, wrote that at the same time as moodydog. Yeah, look at those clouds: Low cumulus, high stratos, that's not good flying weather. It's honestly impressive that they came even close to considering it with this sky.

An unfortunate but necessary call. Well, the next launch day will be at May 30 and it will be in the afternoon.
