If you're a space fanatic like myself, you probably already know about this, but if not, and you like to stay up on technology or simply want to witness historic events in progress, you'll not want to miss this.

The SpaceX Starship prototype SN8 is on the pad, ready for it's first launch, possibly (and hopefully) taking place later today (December 09, 2020) from the SpaceX testing and launch facility at Boca Chica in far south Texas.

The scheduled launch yesterday was aborted literally at the last second, due to an automatic shutdown of it's three high-tech Raptor engines.

The launch window is open during daylight today, but very well may take place at or soon after noon. Additional windows are available tomorrow, in the event there is another delay or weather forces cancellation of today's launch.

Live updates and streaming video is available at the following excellent YouTube locations:
LabPadre NerdleCam
NASASpaceflight.com

More information, as well as live coverage of the launch should also be available on the SpaceX Starship page (this location normally starts streaming only a few minutes before launch).

More information on the vehicle, and why this is such a huge deal for space fans, is available here.
