GO SPACEX!
GO FALCON!
GO DRAGON!

Here's to another great flight.  Let's hope all 9 engines hold up this time.

10:10am EST... that's 1:10am for me. Looks like I picked the wrong week to give up coffee!

Just kidding, I'd never give up coffee.

My wish is that all 10 engines hold up this time...

Falcon 1A        2 flights, 2 failures
Falcon 1C        3 flights, 1 Failure
Falcon 9 1.0    4 flights, 0-1 Failure (depending on how you count it)

Here is hoping we get 5 good flights out of Falcon 1.0 and some good news on Falcon 1.1/Heavy!

To tell the truth I am going to miss Falcon 9's boxy ass.

That's a fair way to count it. Certainly not a full failure (primary mission was a full success), certainly not ideal for the secondary payload.

I'd go as far as to say it was a successful test. They said they could keep on going with a two engine out scenario. Proved 50 percent of that.

I won't need to take any drastic measures to stay awake, it'll be 8:10 am my time Friday, I'll still be home when it goes up.  Go Falcon/Dragon/CRS-2!
I'll even excitedly look forward to "flags and footprints" and suborbital missions. Just fly...somewhere.

For me that is equivalent to a successful mission with bonus points.

Unbridled optimism, love it and I'll drink to that.... Go SpaceX - Go Space Exploration, any and all who further that cause.

Here's too a smooth mission, start the CRS year off to a great start.

Going to be glued to this site, always the best coverage, with the mega bonus of being a L2 member for the great stuff they add in there!

Who can live without coffee   ;D    11.10pm where I am.  At least you could sleep a bit earlier on.  Me, well this is about my normal heading off time.  But I'll be up.  Reminds me of my uni' days  :-X 
Hope the feed's good.

Cheers.

Coffee hot or cold?
Hamburger Hot Hot or Hot  :)?
F9 hot.

Looking forward to another successful F9 V1.0 flight.

I'll be in the middle of labs at uni when she goes up, so I'll have to try and discreetly watch the launch on my phone.

Good luck to everyone involved!
