    Falcon/Dragon gallery/slideshow,

    from the April 2011 arrival of Falcon 9's first stage at SLC-40, Cape Canaveral, to Dragon's disembarkation from the ISS. The slideshow is in reverse order.

    Pictures have been added to the gallery from time to time, so there may be more on the way. As of this posting, there are 61 photos:

    60 Minutes Video

    The Main Stream Media have all but ignored the incredible accomplishments of Elon Musk and Spacex over the last two months. This (updated) 15-minute segment does them some justice:

    Well, that dang KSC video feed/countdown clock has fooled me twice so far (posts 16 and 38), but it's up and running again. Let's see if it sticks this time.

    http://countdown.ksc.nasa.gov/elv/

    The top two counters are clocks showing the present time, starting with the day of the year.

    Here's what it looks like:

    Success!

    I watched the Pegasus launch on the KSC video feed via Real Player and also on SpaceflightNow's Livestream connection. There wasn't much to see because the launch was at night. I saw Pegasus fall away from the plane and disappear. After that, it was all diagrams and commentary. The launch went well.

    Real Player's video feed stayed mostly real-time with an occasional one or two second pause while the plane was on the ground, but got sporadic after the plane took off. There may have been a bandwidth problem at my end. The countdown clocks ran smoothly throughout.

    The Livestream webcast stayed current. It included live commentary and flightpath diagrams, along with a short animation sequence. But it waited until shortly before takeoff before it came online.

    There were no diagrams or commentary on the Real Player feed. There was a flightpath diagram on a separate channel, but it didn't make much sense without commentary, and I had no desire to switch to it during launch operations.

    Florida Today pre-launch broadcast, 19 May 2012

    This video is an hour and 48 minutes long. It gets boring at 1:10, when they start talking about stuff to see at KSC. Skip to 4:55 to get past the dead space at the beginning.
