Anybody planning on watching the SpaceX launch Wednesday @ 4:33 PM ? Anybody going to see it in person ? If all goes well, it would be the first launch of NASA Astronauts to space from U.S. soil since the space shuttle program was retired nearly a decade ago. It will be the first time a private company had boosted people to orbit. Since the shuttle was retired, NASA has had to rely on Russia to get its astronauts to the station. I have seen YouTube videos of the Cockpit and it's more like what you see on Star-Trek (NOT Star Wars). The Astronauts basically just sit and watch several large touch-screens / barely any other controls. I'm looking forward to it and it's something to get excited about.
