Epsilon launch pad I think.

The building blocking the view.

The fella is doing the best he can, so it's appreciated. Going to pop out behind this building.

We'll be glad of the wide-angle shot. She's going to go like a bat out of hell.

An aside, if all goes well the rocket will take four minutes and 13 seconds to reach orbit. I don't know what the record is but that's got to be close. S/C sep is at seven and a half minutes - that final coast is the longest phase of the mission.

Offline Chris Bergin

Guy said it in English, which was nice of him. Ah well, let's see if it's 24 hours.
