Space launch 

SpaceX launched from (and landed at) Vandenburg today. The stream is from NASA so it's a bit different than usual. Some really great views of the landing, which will never get old. And talking a lot with the folks working on the satellite and its mission.

Link goes to the livestream, launch happens about 30 minutes from the start:

Fun fact I learned from this stream: The solar panels on this satellite are not deployed electromechanically, there's just a piece of paraffin that melts when it gets into the harsh sunlight of space, releasing springs.
