I have zero idea about space and sending people up there...

Can someone explain? Is this a risky thing?   If there is risk? Which part is the most risky, the actual launch or the entire flight is risky?

Also, is there anything to watch for that would make it either more or less succesfull?

MISSING:

A poll I created about the launch.


And while you are waiting, take this poll:

Will you be disappointed if the SpaceX rocket doesn't blow up?


Noted suspicious person @Something Fishy seen lurking on the thread in the moments before the disappearance.

IINM the launch is by far the most dangerous part.

Almost all the disasters I can think of offhand were at launch. The exceptions being the Shuttle Columbia disintegrating on reentry (which was cause by damage incurred during launch) and Apollo 13 (I don't remember if that damage was launch related)

First non-government manned launch in history, and first manned launch from US soil in 9 years.

This is seen as the beginning of an age when passengers can pay money and fly to space.

These astronauts are from NASA, but it's a private agreement.

So for those who've been everywhere, this should get you excited. But TR please.
