Waiting for cabin to be below 25C and trending down, unable to doff suits at this time.  Also noting intermittent COMM during the burn (expected).  GO for the phase burn, in about 12 minutes.

Proud to yield the title of "The last commander of an American launched spacecraft" to @Astro_Doug who, with @AstroBehnken, has returned US to space from KSC after 3,252 days. Well done @Commercial_Crew and @SpaceX!

Liftoff of Bob & Doug, ushering in the future of commercial human spaceflight!

This was the most emotional launch Iíve ever had the chance to photograph. Absolutely honored to be able to have the opportunity to capture history like this.

Cabin environments are stable, plan for GO for suit doffing after burn.  Looking at Draco #4 engine, temperature is a little low (out of family).  Not anticipating issues, but want to make crew aware.

Phase burn complete.  Nominal burn!  The Boost burn is next, 1h 24m from now.
Ground crew has disabled cameras as of this time.  Go to doff suits!  Go to reconfig cabin for on-orbit ops.

Suits are off, and are "hanging up" and drying.  Crew has asked for someone to keep tabs on the time they're hanging.

Pretty epic!  Photos from the ISS passing over-head of the launch site right before launch.

Transitioning to manual flight testing.  Ground is sending commands to turn Dragon to far-field pointing.
