Anyone following the launch of the latest Dragon capsule to the ISS ? 

Launch should be around 0027hrs (16th Nov).

First launch was worth watching, especially the recovery.

 

This launch won't be as exciting but does mark another first: the first ever launch of 4 people in a spacecraft without wings (i.e. not a space shuttle).

Technology of rocket capsules has come along so far and equipment has been miniaturised so much over the years that there's now enough space for 4 humans on board.

Once had the chance to go to a shuttle launch while at a conference in Orlando. Minibus leaving for the Cape at crack of dawn. Got wrecked in hotel bar and awoke the next morning on bed fully clothed and feeling extremely rough.

Apparently it was spectacular and I’ve always regretted my stupidity.🍺🤦🏻
