HOUSTON — *The above video is a live look at the launch pad at Kennedy Space Center* The SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket will attempt to liftoff for the second time this afternoon with two Houston-based astronauts. The launch is scheduled for 2:22 p.m. CST. The initial launch was scrubbed Wednesday due to bad weather. If all goes well today, this will be the first time astronauts will blast off from U.S. soil since the space shuttle program ended in 2011. Astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley have been training for this day for the past several years. Much of that time was spent in Houston at the Johnson Space Center.

Thanks for posting. I hope I can find it on tv. BTW --I've never thought about it before, but from where have our astronauts been launching to go to the ISS?

CNN really screwed up the coverage. They were obviously on a delay, showing the countdown even as the split screen showing the rocket off the ground and moving like it was supposed to. Top it off with Scott Kelly talking about Gabbie Giffords getting shot (!). What a mess (Wife controls remote, not my fault)

Yes, #5. I was also watching live and CNN missed the actual launch. They literally did not show the launch when it happened. I speculated on a time delay as well, probably to make sure I didn't see anything upsetting. Then they managed to miss the landing of Stage 1 on the deck of the drone ship, something that I really wanted to see. CNN is utterly useless. And big thumbs up for #6. This is a great thing for America. Congratulations to all who made it happen! P.S. Apparently Musk named his drone recovery ship "Of Course I Still Love You." Listening to the CNN reporter have to keep repeating that made my smile wider. It came across like this: "Soon it will land on the drone ship. Of course I still love you...." (Turns out the other ship is named "Just Read the Instructions." Both are actually named after starships in a book by Iain M. Banks, a science fiction author.) P.P.S. And for the Canadians, hearing that the first two astronauts flying back into space on American ships are named Bob and Doug has also made my day.

Why does everybody complain about the enemedia and then go there to watch the launches? Go to the source, the SpaceX webcast: Also, I don't need some lamestream newspaper patronizing me about "what I need to know." I can figure that out for myself, thanks.

The governments of China and Iran have mocked the United States as a series of violent riots and protests break out around the country following the death of Minneapolis resident George Floy After getting criticized by the Trump administration for Beijing’s crackdown on protesters in Hong Kong this week, an official with the Chinese Communist Party government ripped U.S. leaders over their responses to the Floyd protests. Hua Chunying, a Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson, ridiculed a tweet from Morgan Ortagus, a spokeswoman for the State Department, who was critical of China’s implementation of restrictive new measures in Hong Kong.

Sunday on CNN’s “Situation Room,” former Obama administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice said the violence during the protests over the death of George Floyd was in part because President Donald Trump demonized peaceful protests, including former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick kneeling during the National Anthem. Rice said, “It’s really fundamentally a problem of our society still bearing the vestiges and the realities every day of racial disparities and prejudice, and that’s what needs to be addressed. We need leadership, Wolf, that is interested in our common humanity, in treating all Americans as if they count and belong equally.

Shader has now been charged by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of New York with using an improvised incendiary device to damage or destroy a NYPD vehicle, the Brooklyn court said Sunday.

Elon Musk struggled to describe how he felt after SpaceX, the company he founded in 2002, launched its first people into Earth's orbit on Saturday.At 3:22 p.m. ET, a Falcon 9 rocket lifted off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, carrying the Crew Dragon spaceship that SpaceX designed and NASA funded. Inside sat two NASA astronauts: Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley. It's the first time a commercial spacecraft has carried humans into space, and the first time astronauts have launched from the US since the end of the Space Shuttle Program nine years ago.

I don’t know how many people today still read Eric Hoffer’s The True Believer, but if you are puzzled by the breakout this week of rioting and mayhem (at last count in 17 cities) you’d do well to make yourself familiar with this incredibly well-reasoned text on mass movements. Why are the streets regularly filled with mostly pasty looking stoners pelting stones and bricks, destroying businesses in the poorest urban areas and of even attacking law enforcement on thinnest of pretexts? Partly, I suppose it’s because the shutdown kept them isolated for so long, bored and out of work, but Hoffer’s observation seems to me to best fit:

As protests and unrest continued in Minneapolis following the killing of George Floyd, people are questioning the identity of a man filmed smashing windows. Footage emerged of the white man, dressed all in black, and in gloves and boots, calmly smashing the windows of an auto parts store with a large hammer. His face is obscured by an expensive-looking gas mask and he is also holding an open black umbrella — although it was not raining. Twitter quickly christened him 'Umbrella Man'. The strange choice of clothes for a warm day, combined with the high quality gas mask, raised suspicions. He

Democratic and Republican officials on Sunday took aim at groups like Antifa and Boogaloo as well as demonstrators from out of town as responsible for violent episodes at protests in major cities across the country. President Donald Trump tweeted that he was designating Antifa as a terrorist organization. That followed Trump and Attorney General William Barr earlier pointing to anti-fascist organizers and anarchists as culprits behind the mayhem following the death of a 46-year-old black man, George Floyd, at the hands of Minneapolis police. Others said right-wing extremists such as Boogaloo followers, who hope to bring about a second Civil War, were pushing for such uprising in the protests.

The report was part of the arrest warrant for Derek Michael Chauvin (snip) The brief mention of the autopsy suggests that the case against Chauvin, and possibly his three colleagues assuming they too will eventually be charged, for being totally responsible for the death of Floyd may not be as cut and dried as previously thought.

Many demonstrations have started off peaceful but turned violent, leading to nearly 1,700 arrests in 17 U.S. cities and sparking heated debates among partisan pundits, who blame the other side for the chaos.
