Now scheduled for 8th / 9th May. Apparently has to be early May since the range is very busy for the rest of the month.

Hope they go for it. Bit tired of the suspense. But wait for it. SpaceX time lapse is approximately 2.4 times real time based on analyses of predictions versus actual events so May / June launch is about right - read that somewhere :) .

The NASA Mission Set Database is now saying launch not earlier than 16 May 2010. Here's the link:

As for the suspense, Germans say, "Vorfreude ist die schönste Freude" ("anticipation is the greatest joy").

Thanks for the link and the philosophy. But actually my greatest joy would be watching a successful first F9 mission and SpaceX being able to prove the doubters wrong. Can only hope :)
