I stayed up all night to see it not launch.

it worked out well I think, hereīs the launch, letīs hope they get all the data they need, and I reckon the way back and drop in the ocean will be interesting to see too...

And itīs a splash down :)

I tried to follow it through nasa live..but there was poor linking, finally found it..and all I saw was some parachutes and a poorly view from some type of special cam.
Canīt they cover this better at these modern times? perhaps no real effort is done because itīs just initial tests maybe? and as such things might go wrong etc.

Splashdown photography was covered by drones.
