Watch Morpheus take off and (hopefully) land itself at 2:30 PM ET!
The brains behind the Morpheus lander have made significant progress since it’s ill-fated, but spectacularly fiery first voyage. But then, that’s what makes rocket launches fun to watch: like a NASCAR race, anything can happen. This time, Morpheus is doing a completely autonomous free flight, with the entire series of planned maneuvers under computer control. If the weather holds, you’ll be able to watch it via the UStream link below in half an hour or so, and hopefully it’ll run as smoothly as the SpaceX Dragon launch did a few weeks ago.
