Rocket launch thread

Is no one else super excited about this? So cool!
Astronauts are in their seats and doing checks, launch is just after 9:30pm in the UK.
Watch here: NASA Live: Official Stream of NASA TV - YouTube

Where are they headed?

The ISS. Arrive 4:30 pm tomorrow I think, but I’d have to check that.

First manned US launch since 2011!

Why do they have a children’s car seat next to them? Is Elon’s baby coming along?

Should be visible here in South Wales, going to try to get out and see it!
