It's that time of year again.

Scroll down for the map which provides tracking of the launch platform.  They have been at sea for a few hours now. 

For anyone who missed the fun last year, here's what you're looking at:

With any luck a crash test dummy will be going for a fun flight!

Jeff Bezos has billions to spend on rockets and can go at whatever pace he likes! Wow! What pace is he going at? Well... have you heard of Zeno's paradox?

It is crazy, isn't it? Not for the claustrophobic, either. And I don't fancy taking the launch G's in an upright position.

But it's good that there are people like that in the world. It stops life from getting too mundane.

02:45 UTC Currently waiting on the Höllviken side of the Falsterbo canal.  It's 4:45 am local time, so hopefully they're not waiting for someone to wake up and let them in.

Either Google has gotten faster with their streetview trucks or they are moored in the same spot as last year. :)

Compare to the May 25 dry run.. and as far as I know they haven't got the submarine with them at all this year.

That is correct, no submarine this time, because Sputnik (the HEAT 1X, Tycho Brahe transportation vessel) is now a ship with engines.

Good grief, the business end of that rocket looks more like a rusty boat than a spacecraft. Where have they been storing it for the last year? Moored in harbour?

Yes for Sputnik, and partially for HEAT 1X and Tycho Brahe.
In october 2010: Tycho Brahe and HEAT 1X was lifted off from Sputnik and seperated. Tycho Brahe and HEAT 1X was then transported by  Bornholmsfærgen (a ferry).
Sputnik was trailed to "Refshale øen", Copenhagen where HAB is.
A crane lifted Spunik out of the habour and stored on land. Sputnik had been stored outside HAB during the winter.

Some of this text had been transladed by translate.google.com, and maybe not be correct english, but I hope you understand it.

Thanks for the reply :)
I'm sure you wouldn't be launching if you didn't have full confidence in the vehicle's integrity.

11:49 UTC looks like www.tv2bornholm.dk has some signal.

The video is coming from the boat Mhv 903 Hjortoe.  It seems to be intermittent.
