Time-lapse photo of Falcon 1 under the stars


This amazing photo just came in from the SpaceX team on the ground in Kwaj. Man, I miss being there. (not that I ever was there)

Digg It!

Thanks for posting pics. We appreciate getting a peak into the prelaunch activities, and get as excited as you are about the upcoming success.

I can't wait to see that baby go up :) That will have such an impact... I already see all those news coverages surprised about what just happened and what they didn't notice enough before ;) To hell with SpaceShipTwo *lol* Long live SpaceX and its Falcon 1, Falcon 9, Falcon 9 heavy and Dragon...
And don't you dare prevent the launch with bad weather, weather god! ;)

Can't wait for the launch. I'm a big fan of Spacex, and looking forward to many successful launches.

Is there a launch date/time? I'm worried I'll miss the launch.

I can hardly wait to see that launch! Thanks to the Internet we can see it here from Denmark too! I am also a big fan of SpaceX. Please let us know when you have a launch time! Good luck to all of you!

Launch is today at 23:00 (11 p.m.) UTC. That is (all following times are with the current daylight saving time): 00:00 or 12 p.m. GMT, 01:00 (1 a.m.) CET, or for North America: 7 p.m EDT / 4 p.m. PDT

Have fun! I'll have ;)
Go Falcon!

Thanks so much for your postings. Please keep posting anything your brother permits. :-) It is good for them and us to be able to release information without appearing to make an official statement.

PS Unless that's a video that just won't download, it's "long exposure" image. "Time Lapse" is something else for movies. There is a great example on Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time-lapse

Hi, I work for a company that has created a simple social commerce solution, and we’re hoping to reach non-profit professionals who are looking for creative ways to raise money online. In just five minutes, your organization can set up your own personal storefront and choose from thousands of products to recommend and sell. Anytime someone buys something off your Lodge, your organization gets 10% of the sale.

It’s a great way to mobilize donors because you make money every time they purchase products off your marketLodge! It’s easy to set up a Lodge and display it wherever you go online—set up a widget for your website or blog, or include a link to your Lodge in your email newsletters.

For more information, please go to http://marketlodge.com.
