Nothing on NORAD's TLE site yet - Dragon et al. should become objects 38846 - 38850.

Why wasn't the rocket cam on the NASA feed?
Best quote heard during an inspection, "I was unaware that I was the only one who was aware."

Might just be traffic, LCC-X is down south of CCAFS while the presser is probably at KSC.

Something went wrong at T+01m20s, I think one of the four "corner-cover" was torn away !
I saw that too! I expected it to be an engine transient, since it was back to normal after a few seconds, but maybe that would also happen due to leaving the atmosphere. If it was a lost fairing, it should have shown up on one of the launch replays (which I missed).

I'am almost sure that one of the four "corner-cover" of the first stage was torn away at T+01m19s, first I thought that an engine had exploded !
Fortunately this problem didn't affect the launch.

Mod edit: do not embed images please

Presser begins. Charlie says Gwynne is better on camera than himself, then calls her the CEO.
