SpaceX Launch Calendar

spacexWith a SpaceX launch scheduled for later today, it was shocking to find there wasn’t a global Calendar to keep track of SpaceX events.  Spacexstats.com seemed like a good source of info on upcoming launches, so I set out to make a Python script to scrape it and put the data into Google Calendar.  I was dreading parsing the HTML for the data; then I noticed a string of JSON data right in the header of the Future Missions page.  It was pretty easy work to isolate that JSON string and create iCalendar events from it.  The source can all be found here: https://github.com/redleader36/spacex_calendar
