Not long now.

Webcast:



This is a live update thread, but if several of us post quotes and screenshots we won't miss anything. I'm going to be drafting an article at the same time, so I'll be mainly busy with that.

If we get duplicate quotes or screenshots, I'd sooner have that than miss anything. Of course, the video will be recorded, but there's always special value in live. We still have people looking back 10 years to live mission threads etc. This is live and then becomes an archive.

Discussion - please use that thread.

Five minutes before the scheduled start, and they’re still not letting people in yet. Predicting a launch delay. #IAC2016

Just opened the doors for the general audience. People literally running to get the best seats. Like Walmart on Black Friday. #IAC2016
