It tells me that the 10 minute version is unavailable in my country.  :( 

The short one was great though!

It occurs to me that with the ability to rotate the rocket there is less of a chance that it will become ovoid during an extended bed rest before integration. It was one of the concerns Jim mentioned.

I wish that I could see the full video with the 20 min Elon Musk interview... The 5 minute interview was great though! Strong work spacevidcast.

The short version had a label saying "ITAR restricted". So may be those outside US can't see it due to ITAR. Which would be sort of ridiculous since you could go to the US and learn it anyways if it where so important.

No.. that's on the long version too.

the whole ITAR thing is ridiculous. The govt. acts like USA is the only country in the world able to make rockets. HAALOO, russians were first in space, chinese have their own spaceships, even Iran has its own launcher. And US companies have to act like some kind of manhattan project, when showing their rockets...

What I like about Bobby Block is that he resembles your next door neighbor not a rocket scientist. He's more like the guy at the car show talking about the car he restored. That's what spaceflight needs to get the public's interest, more regular joes who speak regular guy. Of course, you need the professionals in the background doing the real work but, Bobby speaks to me on some level and I can relate to him in a much more real way than some guy in a lab coat.

No, none are in shipping. That's the first stage and interstage for the next flight which is likely to be a combined COTS 2/3 mission, at least that is what indications at NASA indicate according to Chris. The second stage is being held up because of some weld defects but, should be along shortly. The Dragon, for this mission is in final assembly. There will only be one launch, most likely, this year as opposed to what is on Spacex's manifest. You can chalk that up to the fact of NASA's indecision on the matter of the combined launch, that decision coming in June, the fact that Spacex is still in the development phase and has not ramped up production and the FAA which regulates these launches.
