Will be avaible some webcast to look at this "pocket rocket"? :)

Could be a problem! Nothing on Orbital's site, not even a release on the upcoming launch.

Kind of hoping something will appear here:

But looks doubtful.

No webcast, so we can't do this one live.

The problem is with ground equipment, not the rocket.

I think you all can watch the launch on the  NASA web site ELV countdown portal.

Can you be more specific, please? This web site's Windows Media and Real streams aren't opening for me.

Indeed, very good read. Quite the history lesson.
Remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our rights & freedoms, and for those injured, visible or otherwise, in that fight.
