I didn’t know watching rocket launches was still a thing, I haven’t know anyone that’s has done that. Is it common in America and is there like come sort of programme with it on?

ULA getting the job done again! The launch looked good, now we’re just waiting for MES-3, MECO-3, and GOES-R separation to happen soonish.

Doesn’t JSC only control manned missions?

I watched the launch, it was cool! Why was it delayed an hour though?

A rocket issue, then a range issue. Also, the launch was successful and GOES-R has been inserted into the correct orbit.
