Is that the US DeltaV pack in the planners guide?
...
Where are you seeing that? Can you point it out? (screen capture, highlighted in MS Paint)

Worth a heads up ask, but if anyone can work out a VLC link out of the live stream, feel free to post it.

Falcon 9′s Merlin engines hoping to spell success for May 7 target - includes content from William Graham:
http://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2012/04/falcon-9s-merlin-engines-for-may-7-target/

"Attitude control for both stages will be provided by thrust vectoring; with four Draco thrusters augmenting this after the first stage has separated."

Wow, that's news to me, I thought this feature was a future upgrade. Is this the first flight with this capability?

I believe that is incorrect, that the second stage has no Dracos.

I've removed that line to be on the safe side. I've added added a couple of paras on the post test to the article.

It might if some rumors by kevin-rf (etc?) are true. I.e. that this Falcon 9 upper stage has the delta-v-kit on-board. Clarification is definitely needed, here.

Viewer count over a 1000, I bet this will be in five figures easily.

No, I was responding to Corroded Nut's post, Draco's on the US would mean the Delta V kit is included. If that is incorrect or unknown, then what I said is incorrect. Chris removing them from the article means, he is not sure if they exist or not.
I just saw some idiot at the gym put a water bottle in the pringles holder on the treadmill.

He wasn't spreading rumors, he was just responding to my original post. The article is the only source, and now no longer.

Now back to our regularly scheduled program...

Stream is on SpaceX now, Doesn't look HD, So NASA might give better quality if you have access to their HD feed.

EDIT: Or not, NASA is just rebroadcasting it.  :-[
