Musk announced on twitter a little while back they plan on launching in "a week or so"


Its the "or so" part which usually gets you .......

Probably not. It would be cool as hell if they could though.

Great video of an amazing event. However, of all the vids I have seen of this, this one for me is tinged with sadness. That Stoneheng-looking thing in the right-foreground is the abandoned launch-pad 34. Built to launch the Saturn I & IB rockets to test Apollo capsules in Earth orbit, it is the site of the Apollo 1 fire that killed Gus Grissom, Ed White and Roger Chaffee on January 27, 1967.

There's a lot of history sitting around that there cape. I'm glad to see it is still being made.
