Fourth Time's The Charm?

There's another Falcon launch attempt scheduled tonight, 4-9 PM PDT. Here's hoping.

SpaceX will be webcasting, as usual. Spaceflight Now will be covering it as well.

Fourth time is indeed the charm it seems!

Really impressed with how rock solid the second stage was in yaw, pitch and roll.

Looking forward to a Falcon 9 launch.

Congratulations to SpaceX. I hope the MSM gives this huge success the attention it deserves. Bring on Falcon 9!

Why does the spacex link to the launch weirdly claim that 5200 m/s is orbital velocity? A typo? Regardess of that, good show SpaceX!

Now I can look forward to the first flight of the Falcon 9. Perhaps the greatest obstacle there is airstarting the new upperstage version of the Merlin engine.

A wonderful success! They made orbit. The rules may have changed. Congratulations to the entire team.
