I had to know how the SpaceX launch went...

Mrs. Wirehead dragged me to the movie theater to see the movie version of Mama Mia (this is after I got dragged to see the theatrical version more than once…) and it just so happened that they hadnt gotten the rocket off the ground by the time the movie started.

So what was I to do but fire up Spaceflight now, everybody’s favorite space news source on my cellphone during a slow number.

Which, I might add, was both tricky because the movie theater seemed to mostly absorb the cellphone signals but also because Mrs. Wirehead wanted me to watch the MOVIE

Either way, I didn’t find out until the end of the movie that something new went wrong and the thing blew up.
