I thought some of you may enjoy the show.







This is the technical and will only include shots of the rocket along with countdown net audio. For the full webcast check out our Hosted edition. SpaceX is targeting a late morning launch of its tenth Commercial Resupply Services mission (CRS-10) from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The instantaneous launch window is on Saturday, February 18 at 10:01 a.m. EST, with a backup launch opportunity at 9:38 a.m. EST on Sunday, February 19. Dragon will separate from Falcon 9’s second stage about 10 minutes after liftoff and attach to the station roughly two days later. The CRS-10 mission will be SpaceX’s first launch from historic LC-39A at Kennedy Space Center. Following stage separation, the first stage of Falcon 9 will attempt to land at SpaceX’s Landing Zone 1 (LZ-1) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida.

I'll be at the Cape next month for vacation and to watch a nighttime launch. Hopefully the weather cooperates.

One of my biggest regrets is never heading to Florida to see a shuttle launch.

I live part time at the Cape, never seen the shuttle. Wish I had, the locals say none of today's rockets are close in display and sound. I've seen day and night Atlas launches, night is incredible a reply to: Bluntone22

To you SpaceX

Very impressive launch and recovery of the booster!

I was impressed that the loud launch took place with all that cloud cover

I could not see if the Booster Stage of the rocket pin-point landed as planned...(the news announcer described the recovery touchdown, as like setting the rocket down like a pencil standing up on the eraser end) ... Now That is 1950s Sci-Fiction stuff
