Falcon 1 Vehicle 3 Full Webcast

The full webcast of the entire voyage of Falcon 1 is now available. It's an amazing video and I suggest everyone take the time to check it out. I don't think there's anything out there like this. The idea of being this open to the public in any company is amazing. To do it in the space business, with such a high rate of failures, is especially noteworthy.

If you can't access it on my site (the link is a bit spotty), try this page on SpaceX's site.

Digg It!

Don't expect us to forget the late announcement so easily. While SpaceX is still very open, it's not as open as it used to be.

To the previous commenter: "Don't expect us to forget..." ??? SpaceX doesn't owe "us" anything, and in fact gains little or nothing from making launch info and videos available to the general public. It's awesome that such info is available, and the majority of folks following the company would rather see it continue to be available than to be discontinued due to complaints from people who feel entitled to more.

I have to agree that SpaceX doesn't owe the public anything. It's investors and customers yes, but not the rest of us.

This is an exciting time in human history as we sit poised on the threshold of commercial space exploration. Elon & team have made it more exciting by letting us in on it - as if we were insiders.

We are all very thankful for the openness. Any word on when the next falcon 1 will be shipped out? For that matter, it's getting close for the Falcon 9 to be shipped. A lot of us think that the future of manned US space flight depends on SpaceX. Best of Luck.

Any news on the reports that they're going to try for the launch window between this Tuesday and this Thursday?
