Just stood in my driveway and watched the Wallops Island Orbital ATK Antares rocket launch. Pretty cool. I like it when they launch at night. It's carrying a Cygnus spacecraft that will dock with the ISS and deliver supplies.

I tried to get a picture, but I'm not much of a photographer. They're a little shaky, but still pretty decent (for me). I probably should have done video. Next time.

It's good to see them flying again.

Hopefully, our manned program can catch up with the Chinese some day.

SpaceX has returned to flight with a successful launch of the Falcon 9 rocket and deployment of 10 satellites. Let's hope this is the first of a long string of successful launches. They have quite a way to go to catch up with their main competitor's string of 100+ successful launches.



Now, we start anticipating the launch of the Falcon Heavy rocket. 27 engines firing at once. It should be a spectacular show.

I'm really looking forward to see the Falcon Heavy take off.

I read on some space website that SpaceX has plans to do 3 simultaneously launching and (1st stage landing) in Florida. Now that would be worth traveling to the Cape to see.
