The private rocket company Space-X will try once again to launch their first rocket, Falcon 1, Thursday at 13:00 Pacific time. They've tried several times before, but have had various engineering issues to deal with. Yesterday they tested the engine in what's called a "static firing", where they ignite the engine but don't launch the rocket. Everything went fine, so they are go to launch. I'll be watching if I can find a live feed.'
