You have to be a real geek to spend an hour watching TV just to see two seconds of firing...but I loved it!

I'm a real geek.

Be back next Monday and we'll go all the way to orbit.

Can't believe it's been a year since we have seen one of those sing.  I can't wait to see her fly again.

Concur! ;D The forum got as high as 50 percent that for a Shuttle launch! That's what we call in the trade "a lot of interest!"

Thanks to everyone who joined in. Was a fun interactive event. Don't forget to go through the links on the opening post if you're a newbie to catch up with our coverage.

Is there a reason why they removed the countdown from the screen at 31 seconds? I thought we were looking at another abort  ::)

Anyways, well done SpaceX. Bring on next Monday!

Depends. Someone once told me 24 hours, but it'll depend on how it all went.

And that'll do it for their coverage it would appear.
Hope they'll tweak their webcast next week, too.

Seems to me the various feeds are still out of sync so that's why.

They removed the graphic so it wouldn't interfere with the viewing frame.

Indeed. The noise really is something unique.
Thanks for the excellent coverage everyone. 2 hours went by really fast  ;D
