Submission + - SpaceX to make second launch attempt today.

Anonymous Coward writes: "SpaceX is set to launch the second demonstration flight of the Falcon 1 at 4pm California time (11pm GMT) today. The webcast will start at T-60 minutes (I assume more than hour before launch due to built in holds).

In the first attempt a year ago this month, the vehicle was destroyed 34 seconds into flight (burning fuel leak). Odd that all pictures and press releases of that launch seem to have dissapeared from the site. Only two videos of the initial liftof, and a small bit in the company Q&A, remain."
