Falcon 1 is vertical

Weather conditions are good right now for the launch window that opens on Friday. The base have given us five days to find a time to launch. The final decision will be based on conditions on the ground. The priority is always the safety and reliability of the vehicle, and the successful delivery of the Defense Department and NASA satellites to orbit.

That being said, doesn't it just look cool as heck?

[damn. Blogger is down and won't let me upload photos. I've reposted this picture on my typepad blog. check it out here]

Digg It!
