John and I hoofed it up to high ground to watch the launch. The penalties for interfering are not very much. I was surprised.

They're going to try another launch tonight at 6:22.

Yes. I was watching it on NASA TV. Thankfully it was un-manned and no one on the ground was hurt.

I've never watched NASA TV before. I'm rather surprised they're still showing pictures and broadcasting the mission control audio.

I was just about to move this thread to Off Topic when I found this:

Antares launch scrubbed due to boat in restricted zone. How did that happen? - CSMonitor.com

The window for Tuesday evening's launch is a scant 10 minutes long. To miss it means at least a 24-hour delay and the extra costs associated with it.

"We eat the cost; so does NASA. It's part of doing business," says Orbital Sciences spokesman Barron Beneski. "But it's not something we want to see happen."
