And SpaceX is set to launch a Falcon 1 on Tuesday (the 14th) from a US base at the Kwajalein Atoll, Marshall Islands. There is a daily launch window at 4:00 p.m. (PDT) / 7:00 p.m. (EDT). The cargo is Malaysia's RazakSAT imaging satellite and some micro-satellites.

This is their last launch before the big Falcon 9 goes up on its maiden flight later this year.

I'll post the webcast url when they put it up.

Launch is scrubbed for today


The launch of space shuttle Endeavour has been postponed for 24 hours to allow the launch team sufficient time to perform evaluation and retesting of launch pad and launch vehicle sytems as the result of lighting strikes near the launch pad last night. So far, no damage to the space shuttle Endeavour or to launch pad systems have been found. Launch of Sunday is targeted for 7:13 p.m.
