That fairing looks like something from a Mad Max mod for KSP (is there a Mad Max mod?), or stock, but from Jeb's Junkyard.

Seriously, what is that thing?

@Shpaget bubble wrap or stuff like that, I guess. It's for transportation only and is removed before launch.

Look at the interstage, it's wrapped in something, too.

Judging by the live feed, they seem to have removed the wrapping from the fairing.

 

And we have a Liftoff!

SpaceX launches have ruined me. Proton, Ariane, Atlas, etc? Boring.

I'm fine with alternate languages, particularly in the countdowns, etc. I am just sick of the cruddy animations, and low-res video.

That MECO and staging looked weird.

Between it being a UDMH-NTO design and using hot-staging with lower-stage retrorockets? Quite likely.

I thought I was going to miss this one because of school. Then I said to my friend "Hey, there is a rocket launching in 30 seconds." He looks up the stream on his phone (I don't have one) but we are about a minute late and it's just a star in the sky...

One more star than there was yesterday!

That's basically "flight nominal" every 10 seconds and "staging confirmed" / "next stage ignition confirmed" messages.

Some variations include "first stage engines working normally", "pressure in the combustion chambers nominal", "pitch, yaw and roll values nominal".

Darn. Launch is at 7 for me and I'm doing something from 6:30 to 9... There hasn't been any launches for a while and the first one I can't watch... Oh, well. I guess I'll stay up until 1 AM for the Atlas V...

If I find a link to launch coverage, I'll post it. I already have the Atlas launch youtube up.

Launch is in a few minutes, but no coverage for their military launches.
