Successful Launch, Headed back on Sunday

Well, we put another one on-target.
After safeing and stowing the rest of my systems on the platform, we'll head back to Long Beach late Sunday afternoon. It takes about 7 days to get back, and then I'm taking a couple of days off.
Gonna head to Angeles Shooting Range with my son for some rifle time!

  2. Watched it. Always brings chills to me to see spacecraft launch. Spectacular to see the raw power used and the technology in action.

  3. Yep, 2 MILLION pounds of thrust with a 900,000 pound launch weight makes for quite a scooter!
    This was a relatively light weight satellite, and it came off the pad like a bottle rocket.
    Caught us all by surprise, and I almost lost track on it.
