MSNBC.com will netcast SS1's flight. Check Alan Boyle's article at http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/5236958/
Roll out is 0930 eastern.
CNN.com will also netcast.

I suppose you could also go lo tek and watch it on TV, but it just won't seem right without Walter Cronkite.

Hullo all...long time no me .... I haven't visited here, or indeed, I have not flown a rocket since January. I have unfortunately been real busy the past few months with both work and school projects, and forgot what the meaning of the words 'hobby' or 'free-time' were

About the spaceship one launch Monday morning, however: I'll be attending in person, so nyaaaaaa For those of you who live on the wrong side of the globe for this, I'll at least try to uplink a few pics for ya'll

Hmmm... got a launch tomorrow if it's not raining and I think I should be able to squeeze this in. I think my best bet will be watching TV though, as I run a 56k modem.

I have heard many people complaining about the cost of the space program and it's usefulness.

The transistion from the stone age to the modern age probably cost many trillions of dollars. I'm suprised our ancestors were able to accomplish such an expensive task.

PLEASE DO! Firsthand pics are almost better than those uploaded by the press. Thanks!

When I hear such squawking, I recall the button I got from Omni for being a charter subscriber: "The meek shall inherit the Earth. The rest of us will go to the stars." (Variously ascribed, but probably John W. Campbell).

Asimov or Clark I think...

Or Heinlein or Bova, I've seen them all credited. But Campbell most often.

Does anyone know if this is going to be on television? I will be home at launch time and won't have an internet connection.

Yes, it will be televised on a station you don't receive (if your luck is at all like mine

"Ask ten different scientists about the environment, population control, genetics, and you'll get ten different answers. But there's one thing every scientist agrees on. Whether it happens in 100 years, or 1000 years, or 1000000 years, eventually the Sun will grow cold and go out. When that happens, it won't just take us. It'll take Marilyn Monroe, and Lao Tzu, and Einstein, and Buddy Holly, and Aristophenes. All of this, all of this was for nothing unless we go to the stars." - Commander Jeffrey Sinclair, "Infections", Babylon 5.
