I'm going to be at work what is the best way to watch it on the iPhone?

I was able to use my iPhone to view the streaming from the SpaceX official site during the last launch - presumably it will still work. Just navigate there with the browser and you should be able to see a link that works.

If there is place left in the Dragon, they should bring an espresso machine.

That's really cool actually.

With Progress doing fast rendezvous, maybe they could load a themos full of hot coffee on board before launch (although the astros might prefer a nice cold drink to a hot one).

Either the NASA TV or LiveSteam feeds work. I prefer the SpaceX LiveStream feed but opinions differ.

For NASA TV you can use the NASA app from the AppStore or link through NASA.gov. Coverage at 8:30 AM EST.

For LiveStream you can click the above link in Safari, link via the SpaceX sites feed (same difference), or get the LiveStream app from the AppStore. Start it at 9:30+ AM EST click its "Live Now" button, browse the list to "Science & Tech" and it should be on the list. That or search for "SpaceX Live."

I prefer the LS app.

Hey docmordrid, reading between the lines, as I'm want to do, will there be a 3D broadcast?

Not that I've seen. Would be nice though ;)

I plan to route the LS feed through my editing cards HDMI out to the LED preview panel & have plenty of popcorn & brew ready. Fire up the LFE's and let the windows rattle :)

I fully intend to do so.

Not entirely certain what it is about Elon and Spacex. I've been following launches most all my fifty years and I keep looking at the clock 24 hours in advance wondering if it's time yet for this one. I did not make a conscious decision to become a Spacex fanatic  but it's happened. It appears to be some kind of calling.

Is it time yet? :)

Especially cool launch as we'll be saying goodbye to the Falcon 9 V1.0.

It made us proud.

I wouldn't give him such a hard time.  Some of us saw the (unfortunately lost) “Yes!” post during COTS Demo flight 1

Wasn't there also a "GO BABY" during F9 maiden launch?

You miss my point. Jim gives credit where it's due but he is not a "party hat" kind of guy... :) At least not on here anyway.

 Dragon Rider, Reusability, Grasshopper, Mars architecture, this constant forward looking inovation and striving to be  more than what they are is why people are excited by SpaceX.

Anyone want to take a guess at what hardware project SpaceX/Elon announce/start next.
