We Have a Date (UPDATE: No We Don't)

Mauser missed it by THAT much.



I have it on very good authority that Twitch.tv/brickmuppet will be livestreaming it. Join my internet alter-ego and his Crack Team of Science Babes....

(well....at least one of them) 

...as they discuss this momentous occasion and provide a thoughtful, if snarky peanut gallery to any unplanned fireworks.  


Like this for instance...

Join us for the festivities beginning at 07:00 EST/ 11:00 UTC next Wednesday the 19th. 


UPDATE: Well...THAT'S a nice clarification. The Space Rocket Launch Schedule website now says that the launch date is TBD.  I'm not 100% sure it did not say that before , but I didn't see it, and I'm fairly sure that paragraph was not as long when I read it the first time. 

This morning I saw an announcement that it was going to be next Monday and currently I'm seeing this on Yahoo News :

 Current federal requests point to a liftoff between Monday, April 17, and Friday, April 21. Many believe Musk would be happy to see Starship fly on April 20, or 4/20, which is often used to reference all things marijuana-related and has become a favorite joke for Musk.

I'm sorry about jumping the gun on this, but it looks like no date is set as of this time. 

Spaceflight Now (currently) has the launch as No Earlier Than April 17th.
