Originally scheduled for today, the launch of the first manned Falcon 9 had to be rescheduled due to bad weather. New date is Saturday, launch time's 9:22pm.

The rocket is to transport 2 astronauts to ISS. This is the first manned SpaceX rocket.

Here's the NASA live stream on the NASA site.

I was ready to watch it fly directly over head too.. We watched the live count down and - fail..

But we went outside 10 minutes later and had a great view of the space station right above.
