SpaceX Will Try to Launch on December 8

Florida Today reports that SpaceX will next attempt its Falcon 9 COTS-1 launch on Wednesday December 8. The launch window extends from 9:03 AM to 12:22 PM.

I'll be out on the Cape with a bus tour that starts at 9 AM. I'll bring along a camcorder, so if circumstances permit I'll videotape the launch up close and personal. No promises.

UPDATE December 8, 2010 6:50 AM ESTA front-page story in today's Florida Today about the launch. A CNN story reports SpaceX and Orbital as developing commercial crew vehicles but doesn't mention other possibilities with a capsule atop a Delta or Atlas.
