Falcon 9 Rocket Flies; Flight... And Fly... Immortalized On Video

Watch the video of the massive Falcon 9 rocket, a private venture by SpaceX, as it lifts off for orbit. There was a bug, a sort of fly in the ointment. The launch was just about textbook perfect (can we still say "textbook perfect" after the Texas SBOE wrought its havoc?), but there was a bug nonetheless. Watch the video.

Actually, the bug looks less like a fly and more like a mosquito...

AFTERTHOUGHT: it could reasonably be argued that the apparent bug is really Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AssholeAlabama).
