And that is how you do that. The launch abort Saturday morning was disappointing, but as I said, it was a successful failure. The abort process worked, the rocket was safed, and they were able to troubleshoot the issue, resolve it, and try again this morning. This time everything went off flawlessly. Awesome, just awesome.
I love the celebration at the end of the video once Dragon is in orbit and the solar panels have deployed. And an interesting contrast when they cut over to NASA’s ISS control room – a slightly different wardrobe for one.
Now the testing begins, hopefully culminating in a successful berthing at the ISS and a good re-entry.
EDIT: SpaceX posted the full hour long webcast from the launch:
