Rocket Launch Party: Falcon 9/Echostar 23


10! 9! 8! Come experience the excitement of a rocket launch, live in AltspaceVR! SpaceX will be sending the communications satellite Echostar 23 into orbit atop their Falcon 9 rocket, and we get to watch (from a safe distance of course). This will be the last launch of the Falcon 9 in "fully expendable" mode, meaning that they will not attempt to recover the first stage of the rocket on the drone ship like normal. In the future, launches like this will be done by the new Falcon Heavy rocket in reusable mode. This is history in the making, folks, you don't want to miss it!

The launch is currently scheduled for Monday night/Tuesday morning, March 14th at 01:34 EST, but that may change. Stay tuned!
