Screw politics, coronavarus, and your dear Aunt Minnie, I'm gonna watch the launch of Demo-2.

Ah, well, weather didn't cooperate. Try, try again.

1. I might watch it too.

If I can only figure out what time it's supposed to happen! Maybe 1:30 pm PDT?

3. Yes, liftoff at 4:33 PM Eastern

On internet, they have coverage now on youtube -- here is one link [link:|]

Hatch is closed -- hour or two early.

I am watching without sound because I cannot stomach Elon Musk.

4. Yeah, Trump is defiling Kennedy Space Center...

... they showed Air Force One coming in on the feed. Reminds me of Nixon taking credit for Apollo.

5. I'm so stoked about private business getting into space!

Even though I'm not a fan of Elon Musk.

7. I wonder who designed the support staff uniforms...

... they look like something out of "Dr No." And the astronauts look like Star Wars Storm Troopers. Black boots? What's that all about?
