Watch Richard Garriott's Flight into Space
« on: October 01, 2008, 08:11:19 PM »
Interested in watching Richard Garriott's historic journey into space in the early hours of Sunday, October 12? Now you will have multiple opportunities, both at a space launch party in Austin and across the Internet via a variety of live video streams.

If you're going to be up and around in Austin Saturday night into Sunday morning, the space watch party will be held at Opal Divine's Penn Field restaurant on 3601 S. Congress Avenue. The festivities start with live music by The Echo Vine at 11PM, with pre-launch activities starting at 12:30AM and the launch scheduled for 2AM local time. You must be 21 or over to attend.

Even if you're not around in Austin, you can still watch the launch online with the following webstreams:
You will also be able to get more information and webstreams on the NASA website and elsewhere on the Internet, or at http://richardinspace.com. It may also be available on NASA TV, which some cable and satellite providers carry.

The space launch is set for 1PM Kazakhstan time, which in Central Daylight Time would be 2AM Sunday morning, 3AM on the east coast, and Midnight on the west coast.

1) I reject your reality.... and substitute my own
2) Not to be used when upset... will void warranty
3) Stoke me a clipper i will be back for dinner
4) Never tell Gangrel to do anything... he will probably get it wrong
5) I have seen more intelligence from an NPC AI in TR beta, than from most MMO players.

Cool article on Garriot's flight over qat ABCNews.com:

Article on Richard Garriot's spaceflight at ABCNews.com

Seems his father Owen Garriot will be the chief scientist in charge of experiments.  Wondwr how often they've had a father/son combo like that?

Suprised NASA isn't pushing the PR machine on that one :)

Now, I'm not sure how many people noticed that in the video that Richard is in fact holding up a sign with a message writted in logos.

I have been trying to work it out from the grainy picture, and all I have so far is "(Space) Is The ... Of (Your) ... ... Will Not ...(Open) The ... Future"
