Falcon 9 is now vertical at the Cape!
After a very smooth vehicle mating operation yesterday, we began the process of raising Falcon 9 at 12:45pm EST [January 10] and approximately 30 minutes later, Falcon 9 was vertical at the Cape.
The process of taking Falcon 9 vertical was a critical step in preparation for our first Falcon 9 launch later this year. This accomplishment culminates several months of rapid progress, made possible only through the hard work and dedication of the entire SpaceX team. We will continue to post more photos as available but in the meantime, [URL=http://spacex.com/multimedia/videos.php?id=36]click here[/URL] for some great time lapse video of the operation.
