Yeah, I don't know why this isn't getting more media attention. My wife didn't know about it until I mentioned it last night. I'll have to remind her later to turn it on and watch with the kids because I'm at the office today.Had to look up the significance of this because I had not been paying attention. Found a nice summary:
What we're covering here
- What is happening: SpaceX is expected to launch astronauts Douglas Hurley and Robert Behnken on a mission to the International Space Station at 4:33 pm ET today.
- Why it matters: This will be the first space launch from US soil since 2011.
- A win for SpaceX: If successful, this would be SpaceX’s first-ever crewed mission in the company’s 18-year history.
Yeah, I don't know why this isn't getting more media attention.
Was thinking this too! That's a pretty easy disease vector to trace.Can you imagine the iss astronauts that have been up there watching us deal with a pandemic and then watching this rocket come toward them. “MFers better have SCRUBBED that thing inside and if I see ONE sneeze we’re calling this off....”
So far it's been mostly good info. There is a live feed in Dragon right now. They are already seated and running tests I believe. A lot of interviews and history discussions, as well as reports on what social media thinks.Is this a good source to watch the actual launch online? I don’t have live tv where I am.
