OT Falcon Heavy

The recent Government shutdown seems to be interfering with the SpaceX Falcon Heavy Launch. NASA (the launch complex) is a government operation.

A static test fire of the rocket's 27 Merlin engines was scheduled for this month and then the launch to follow.

We can however chalk one up for the little guy! A Rocket Lab Electron Rocket was launched from New Zealand over the weekend on it's second orbital test flight. Rocket Lab's Electron was designed to put smaller "nano satellites" (2lbs - 22lbs) into orbit.
