^ That's gotta be a trick question.  But we'll get back to that.

So tonight apparently there was a SpaceX launch from Vandenburg.  Thank goodness for the wife and Facebook or I'd have had no idea.

We went out at launch, watched, watched, and I'll be damned but we could see the rocket going up, separation from a booster, and then what appeared to be orbital insertion.  That was super epically awesome!  I've never seen a rocket launch, and that was uber cool.

Wifey got it on video, so I'll post that up here at some point. 

Timely.   8)

Heh. 

We had a real live rocket scientist up in computer gaming, but he just couldn't make his way down here I guess.   :-[
