SpaceX will be launching Falcon 1 (which is being described as, “the first original American liquid fuel launcher in four decades”) in about an hour. I’ll be watching the live webcast!

From the SpaceX website: “Falcon 1 is a two stage, liquid oxygen and rocket grade kerosene (RP-1) powered launch vehicle. It is designed from the ground up for cost efficient and reliable transport of satellites to low Earth orbit.”

UPDATE – After a forty-five minute delay, the launch was aborted with one minute and two seconds remaining. I’m still waiting to hear why and whether or not they will attempt to launch again today.

UPDATE – Today’s launch has been scrubbed.
