8-3 school hours also suck. Especially when YouTube streams are blocked.

Since there are NASA experiments aboard, they will also be streaming it apparently.

NASA streaming a BO launch? This will be a first! Thank you for magically finding a stream, this means a lot!

...Now, can you magically find a way for me to postpone my Spanish final so I have time to watch the stream? XD

Sorry, I have no power in that regard, but I read that NASA was streaming the BO launch and thought I'd drop that tidbit in here for you.

Well, that makes the decision on which launch to watch easy.

Maybe... high winds at cape... presumably trending the right way, though.

So...basicly they show they can animate a video?

(and yes i know they ARE building hardware...but there is nothing of that in the video. Basicly it could just mean anything. )

And fairing.

No reentry burn, it looks like.

I like the fact that the legs can extend and fold back on their own.

I dreamt very vividly last night that I went up on a ship like this one. It will be worth it. If you ever get a chance to go to space, do it. Do it do it do it. Even if it's just a suborbital jump.

If they get the price down to, say, 1st class airfare (one way), then I'll buy a ticket and go. That's still like $1000+/minute.

It would indeed be very cool, but I'm too optimistic about the future of proper orbital spaceflight to do this, lol. If I ever end up with enough money to do this, I'll probably wait a decade or so for orbital flights to be the same cost.

If not, I'd definitely "settle" for this. Unless Virgin is cheaper or something.

They have always been incredibly quiet about this kind of thing (in contrast to New Glenn's main competitor, let's be honest here). I remember once they did a factory tour for media that included suspiciously placed black drapes blocking off half the place. I'm sure we'll see it eventually, at least when they get to their first NG test flight.

Edit: Already posted by Tater my mistake. They seem to have reuploaded it for some reason.

In the description, they say it'll debut in 2021. I just wish we know what they have developed by now :D But they must have some idea of when it'll fly at this point, that's just a couple years away. Who knows though, it could turn into another Falcon Heavy, but I hope they will be capable of sending stuff to the Moon in the first half of the 2020s.

My guess is they fly people on NS one day before the first flight of SpaceX’s StarHopper... because there is a president... :sticktongue: 

Prolly do the same with a NG booster/Superheavy.
