"The first Electron has arrived at the launch site"

If they dont start shipping it in larger sections, it is going to take forever.

@Kryten - "Launch currently on hold due to weather - high clouds causing risk of triboelectrification. Updates to follow #ItsaTest"

So what Im hearing is, it cant launch because there are too many electrons up there already?

hehueheuhehue...SCIENCE JOKE.

Im here all night folks.

Perhaps they should ask the Russians to launch some Protons first?

I wonder what the capabilities of a "Hydrogen" rocket would be. You know what I mean, an Elektron* on top of a Proton.... Or make it a Tritium rocket, with a couple of "Neutron" strap-on boosters.

Brought to you by the Atomic Rockets Corp. 

*Assuming vacuum-optimized engines, of course

I don't know, but if we plot it on a chart the scale is not linear.

If we include the Saturn family, it gets even weirder.

Looks like there will be no launch attempt tonight, as there's no NOTAM. Weather is supposed to clear up next week.

EDIT: there's still no NOTAM, so definitely no attempt tonight.
