For our buddy @Draggendrop, who couldn't be here to celebrate this day with us. He would have loved this. (Y)

Would have?!  What happened?!?!?

I share the sentiments. :cry:

 

We'll deal with all of this another time. He wouldn't want us to be sad on a day like this.

OK, can you guys watching this launch live do me a small favour? Crack open a beer for me (if you have them) and raise a cold one for @Draggendrop as the launch goes up?

Well, I'm not exactly drinking a beer ... :shifty: ... I'm on the hard stuff today, and the 'ol lady is plenty P.O.'d about it too. And I don't give a hoot about it either.

 

(Week 3 of Calculus III, and I'm getting a 95% so far. Yeah. I'm getting sloshy. :D)

The plaque was a nice touch too. Good for them.

It's a shame Mr Steven couldn't be there to join them. Recovering the fairing would be the cherry on the cherry on the cake
