  1. Well that sucks.

    If they were launching from inside the caldera of a dormant volcano, they wouldn’t have this weather issue. Just saying.

  2. If all goes well, we should see many more people launches soon. And not all for NASA,

  3. Kind of frustrated about this, I’m evening shift, I’m going to miss the actual launch.

    But it’s exciting, hope the weather cooperates!
