Post Falcon I, delayed again   Posted on: Thu Nov 17, 2005 8:48 am
It's expected but quite disappointing
Since October this year, it has been delayed for 2 times already
I doubt that if they cannot deal with the Falcon I problem
It will never have chance to grab any market share from Delta rockets
It is not competitive
I even doubt that if they can make Falcon I to space anyway.

As Sigurd wrote on the News page, the launch isn't delayed. It was a misunderstanding regarding the second launch from Vandenberg.

Thanks to the user webkabouter, who told me the earlier news I posted was wrong.

I really think they have a large chance to be successfull.
And even more people said scaled wouldn't be successfull.. and questioned if they could ever succeed... and they did succeed well.. I would say.. just wait ;) and I support SpaceX for trying.

Thanksgiving has better juju than a Halloween launch.

hehe -- agreed. Especially since it will give me something better to watch than Tech getting beat by UGA...
