I've been watching on the SpaceX YouTube channel since 11:30am! You can also watch on the NASA YouTube channel. Both are the exact same feed as the NASA TV stream.

One thing I'm tired of are the social media updates, can't believe anybody watching actually cares what is happening on social media. We missed the seats rotating into position for a twitter message from some stupid girl (that the astronauts will never hear anyway). Ugh, I hate social media, wish it would all go away!

One thing that is amazing to me is the elegant and simple design of the cockpit as compared with prior vehicles.

@Bazza - are you where you can see the launch today?
Yes, I'm home and if it's not too overcast will be able to see it. I may go up on my new metal roof and take pics even..... (y)

Thanks for this thread and links.

The two biggest factors that will impact the decision to launch are electrical energy in the area and bad weather at the abort sites.

Fingers crossed........

Awesome. Post those pics if you get to see it.

The clouds look ominous but it's pretty soon after launch window opens that it looks like it might clear up. Not sure how long the window is open but it may be enough.

We'll do another Game Thread on Saturday but sounds like a 50/50 shot due to weather on Saturday, too.
