Please, we want >100 NOMINALs on this flight!   ;D

Watching on NASA TV now.  Here's hoping for a very NOMINAL flight.  :)

That's very nice. Reminds me of the shot I've been desperate to get for years, of the ISS going over York Minster Cathedral, but have never managed it yet.

Fireworks for my birthday!  Nice work Orbital, I'm very glad to see another U.S. craft on its way to ISS.

And yes Chris, the site's been fine from my end.  Great work, appreciate it!

Site was nice and busy but we didn't have to restrict anything. Seemed pretty smooth to me.

We also turned the threads to "unique views only" on the counter, so that's why the live thread count looks low.

Smooth for everyone else?

I'd say that was a NOMINAL launch! :)

Great job Orbital.

Great job Orbital.

I disagree... that was a phenominal launch!!  Spell check doesn't like it, but I think I'll start using that spelling for phenomenal from now on.

Woo! Solar arrays deployed! Congratulations Orbital!

Watch out, Station, here we come! Hope you're thirsty!

I dunno the direct distance from our site to the pad, but it's over 100 miles away from here.

Congrats Orbital! Looked like a beautiful nominal launch.

Really pumped for this mission.
