    The plot needs fleshing out and the character development is very weak.

    To get details on visibility at your location you can use

    Heavens-Above

    They already have DM-2 under the name Crew Dragon.

    Apparently it doesn't exist.

    Crew Dragon - Visible Passes

    Added: Mind you there's nothing there for the ISS either.

    A bird just flew past the camera. That was a moment of real excitement.

    Looks like it. But the rocket is quite reliable. NASA calculated the risk as a little better than 1/270 for loss of crew. Which was the formal requirement by NASA.

    The astronauts are about to enter the Tesla cars that will drive them to the pad.

    I am watching the SpaceX stream because it is ahead of the slightly lagging NASA stream. But I switched off the sugary comments and listen to the commentary of NASAspaceflight forum.

    I found it refreshing that CNN were covering something else rather then Covid and Trump (both viruses) but immediately after the postponement of the launch back to the same old.

    ISS orbits the Earth in 90 minutes, surely it's not that hard to figure out.

    Obviously has got a delay - nothing unusual with all the aircrafts nowadays - what you can rely nowadays on?

    Btw Apollo XII was struck by lightning after take-off.

    Twice.


    Which was probably a bit unnerving for the astronauts, which for all intents and purposes, were sitting inside a giganterous bomb travelling at fuck-off MPH.

    Which caused it to lose all its computers for a short while, it lost all guidance. But a cool controller on the ground sussed the solution out very quickly..

    T + 1 minute, 36 seconds - "Try SCE to AUX." Was the command given. It worked!!

    https://history.nasa.gov/afj/ap12fj/a12-lightningstrike.html

    No need to go through that again..
