Watched it live, That is so cool. Musk sent his personal Tesla up and a loop of David Bowie's Major Tom, The man is a character but his company Spacex is doing amazing things.

Yes, watched the glitchy (at least here) live stream on Youtube. Loved the shot when the fairing separated and the camera showed the cockpit of Musk's roadster in space with DON'T PANIC on the dash screen as Bowie's Starman played.

They've rescheduled the Feb 10 launch to the 17th of a Falcon launch from Vandenberg here in California to the 17th.

Code: Select all

NET FEB 17 	Dawn? 	Falcon 9 	SLC-4E 	Vehicle will launch Spain's Paz earth observation satellite. Backup launch date is FEB 2. Liftoff may occur during morning twilight and cause the exhaust plume to be illuminated by the sun when the vehicle reaches high altitude
A similar launch just after sunset in December put on a real sky show here in San Diego. I could see the first stage separate and fall all the way down to its first slowdown burn. I don't know about this "dawn" thing, though.

Yes, up in space and boring tunnels into the Earth. I just hope he doesn't become a Bond supervillian.

Live stream of Starman in the Tesla: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aBr2kKAHN6M

Some shots would make awesome wallpapers.
