Due to launch Monday, carrying Malaysias RazakSAT satellite.
Considering only a 25% success rate what do you think will happen on monday?

All of the previous failures are understood and fixed. I can't say anything about the success of the entire mission as they have not delivered a working craft to orbit before. I do, however, think that they will succeed.

Sorry I forgot to put "No" in the poll, some reason it wont let me edit it...
I believe SpaceX would have alot riding on this launch for it to be successfull.

Let me get this straight. You set up this poll, and you want to vote 'No'?

Not vote no, it wouldn't be a poll if it didnt have opposites.

Should be successful, but seeing that they haven't launched a real payload into orbit before it doesn't been its 100% guarnteed.

Omg, six weeks!?

On that "schedule" I am beginning to doubt that we will see the F9 maiden flight still in 2009...

Six weeks - must have been a serious problem, obviously there is still a few things to iron out with Falcon 1. I agree this doesn't bode well for Falcon 9 launching this year.
