New Live Stream/ What I know about this rocket

From what I've been told they are going to hold off on the rocket until the 24th. Here are a few useful links related to the UAF Poker Flat rocket launch. I also have a timelapse from 2003 that shows what it should look like from the webcam.

I find that this is currently not up to date if the informaiton I've been told is correct.

Live Stream from Poler Flats   
I have never watch this stream while they are launching a rocket. I'm not really sure where the stream is, How it will play out and if it will be on when they go to launch the rocket. As far as I can tell so far it is a bunch of guys setting around in chairs.

Rocket Launch Sample from Dec 2003
