John Batchelor and I discussed the SpaceX Demo-2 Crewed Dragon flight planned for the ISS but which was cancelled due to weather issues.  I discussed what was shown for the mission on most all TV channels as the global interest in the mission and the launch was significant.  During this short one segment 10 minute discussion, you will come away with a brief but accurate description of the SpaceX production for this launch.  Those of you familiar with NASA launches, compare and contrast this SpaceX launch to what you saw for Apollo and later the Shuttle.
