I heard about it in time to watch the feed from SpaceX.

I love that the launch was delayed a day by a crack in a nozzle that
they fixed by trimming the nozzle 4". Imagine the launch delay if
this had been NASA.

Only downside was the propulsion engineer who looked like he'd
stepped out of a 1980s porn movie.

Next question is whether it splashes down without incident.
