Pity that Falcon failed for the third time. Mind you I still can't help feeling that rockets like this are very C20 and by now we really ought to be onto the spaceplance versions such as the X prize winner (and soon to be Virgin Galactic) SpaceShipOne and the WhiteKnight 2 carrier vehicle (unveiled last week):
The video from the second failed launch is a great view of what its like going into space as a rocket - complete with stage and fairing separation. Pity it never made it to orbit either.
