    SpaceX launch of Jason-3 is scheduled to launch today at 1:42 EST.
    First stage will try to land on a drone ship.

    Well, the NASA webcast wasn't very helpful. After launch, it only showed the control room.

    The best coverage was from the two YouTube websites and Spaceflight Now.

    Looks like SpaceX left its webcast in the hands of Livestream, without putting it on its own website. Livestream sent the stream to YouTube instead.

    I received these links via email from Livestream, but failed to check them before the launch:
