If everything goes according to plan, humans will be launched into space for the first time on a SpaceX rocket using a SpaceX capsule on May 27, 2020.

Launch info and stream should be able to be found here:
https://www.spacex.com/launches/

I wish them good luck, and safe flying!

History baby. Yeah.

On my way now. They are saying better than a 60% chance of launch. Skies are not looking good; hopefully better at the Cape.

Weather also has to be acceptable in a number of downrange abort areas. I'm not counting on this launch proceeding, hope I'm wrong.

Both SpaceX and NASA TV is streaming this in 720p.

720p for #%&*$# sake - is this 1991?

Where the hell is the 4K/HDR stream? This is SpaceX - not ESA after all. Rather pissed off at that - I want to watch it on my 4K TV in glorious resolution and we get something that was obsolete before Musk was born.

Thanks for the heads up, Arthonon. Nice to see that my TV still works, and I'm going to keep it on the DirecTV NASA channel for the day.

Apparently it is bumper to bumper at the Cape atm, hope you got yourself a nice quiet spot mate.

Edit - 30 minutes and counting, looking good!

What's a little weather when the rocket flies so fast it will go through the weather clouds faster than Superman not long enough to be in them clouds to be affected.

It's not the clouds per say, it is the rain and hail contained within the clouds that could do damage to the craft flying at the speeds it does.

From SpaceX Twitter: "Standing down from launch today due to unfavorable weather in the flight path"

I'm reading that as bad weather downrange so it was probably in case of an inflight abort. You don't want to come down in a thunderstorm / high seas if you have an inflight abort a few hundred miles downrange.
