Orion/Delta IV Clear the Tower

The Delta IV Heavy with Orion on its nose streaked past the service tower as swing arms connected to the rocket swiveled backward out of its way.

  1. Let’s see. Get up early to see the launch and the flight. Follow the countdown to 20 or 15 seconds to launch. Ready to watch the launch of a space vehicle that I have been watching develop for a long time on NASA.gov. Then, the upstream-downstream-whatever freezes up. You can tell I am no computer person. The little blue box comes on with the arrow going around and around and around comes on. Have the wonderful experience of missing it.

    Hope the flight goes better. Maybe I will see it in the funny papers.

  2. What the…!?!?! I was watching nasa.gov since t-minus 30 minutes and I lost video at t-minus 10 seconds. The video streaming just locked up with a spinning hourglass. I have a VERY fast internet connection, so I’m sure the problem wasn’t on my end. Yesterday, I watched until the scrub, and that was less disappointing than today’s snafu. How is NASA going to get into deep space if they can’t even stream video to those of us stuck on earth?

  3. I had the family circled around the Roku for the NASA live stream this morning. Too bad that it completely stalled at the moment of lift-off. Maybe NASA should look for a better streaming service.

  4. Good job, NASA!

    I hope you guys get a lot of useful data from this mission, and I hope you get some cool pictures too!

  5. My feed crashed a T-0:20 too! Can’t wait to see the actual liftoff asap.

    Same thing happened yesterday morning around T-3:50 so I switched to Space.com

    I heard later that Nasa’s feed was back up later and switched back. Does anyone know if the Ustream data is showing how many are accessing the feed or how much capacity is remaining?

  6. Very disappointed in the stream this morning. Got my son up at 5:45 Central to watch and it goes out 20 sec. left in the sequence.

    Congrats to everyone involved in the project regardless!
