And doing that much math at this hour just made my brain hurt. A lot. :confused:

I just let @NextLaunch on Twitter do the timezone math for me :P

Thanks. One of these days I really need to actually get a twitter account and stop besieging myself with texts. :rolleyes:

Having seen the picture of the X-37B on this thread (not to mention the technicians standing around it), I find it amazing to think that it's all  crammed into that little fairing. Really brings home the size of the Falcon 9.

I always get a bit of cognitive dissonance with the 'booster on a barge' pictures after a successful recovery. Rationally I know that I'm looking at an immense multi-story metal sculpture with rocket engines on the bottom.  But I really don't get that from the pictures - the scale is all wrong somehow.

I'm very excited of this launch and curious if we see some video about the X-37B or not more than the S1 return:rolleyes:

I think you first can really imagine how big this rocket is when you see it standing in front of you

Too bad I have class...

...in a computer lab! And we might not be doing much at the time of launch?

Nicely done. I don't mind at all not watching the second stage when I have a first stage landing to watch.

Just a short question: which livestreams do you liked more, the technical and hosted webcast or only the launch webcast ( both together ) ?

Technical stream. Although usually I livestream both, one on my phone and one on my laptop.
