Game, set...

Today is the day. Within the hour Spaceship one will make it's third attempt to fly to space, and this one is for the money.

For my part, this is how I prefer to witness history; In my own chair with a nice cup of coffee and a remote control. (It is however an ungodly hour for those of us on the left coast who prefer to keep vampire hours.)

[Edit: 0749]
SS1 dropped, and ignition! Some slight roll.
Shutdown good burn, passing through 100Km and still climbing.
Peak altitude, coming down.

Touchdown! Now we await the official word.
