Booked my hotel off site. Staying close to the Midway airport & can Uber or train it in. $800 Canadian for 7 nights, cheaper than onPeak hotel blocks. Plus I get free breakfast!

I grew up around Midway.  Hopefully you're South of the airport and not too far North.  From what I remember you didn't want to go much past 35th street...

Staying at the Quality Inn Midway just south of the airport so I should be fine. They have shuttle service to the airport & back so hopefully can use that. Transport to the Con looks good via train/bus/uber. Flights look good going to Midway from here with 1 stop in Minneapolis. Having my friend come down again helps splitting the costs.

I would like to kindly ask that No Spoilers be posted. A lot of people like to stay spoiler free as it really does ruin an awesome movie. Thank you.

Most of the YouTube videos are saying live but it is a prerecorded loop aka rerun/replay.

Elon Musk's Tesla Roadster and Starman Leave Earth Forever in This Final Photo

Quote
Shortly after SpaceX's Falcon Heavy launched the Roadster into space, three cameras began beaming live views of the car and Starman back to Earth. That webcast lasted 4 hours and 39 minutes before going offline.

"Ground control to Major Tom, you're circuit's dead, there's something wrong."

We hope you got a chance to view the Starman Tesla livecam while it was operational, but Elon Musk in social posts, below, says they've lost the video feed. What's available in the video above is now replay.e.

Any idea how long the camera batteries are gonna last?  Are they solar? 

The live video is awesome...  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m2p55BmwmJM

From what I read, the car battery will last 12 hours after launch then the feed will be lost. As for the center core, it ran out of fuel & crashed 300 feet from the drone ship at 300 mph.
