    The launch of the Space X Heavy rocket last night was truly epic. What an amazing achievement! The boosters landing after separation was stunning!:



    Welcome to the future!

    watched the livestream

    the landings were epic, you can see spacex staff were super excited from the live broadcast.. sadly the center core didn't land because it ran out of igniter to relit the engines.. only 1 from 3 engines planned was restarted when the center core did the landing burn, so it hit the water at 100mph 300mph (misheard the press conference).

    and live view from the tesla roadster orbiting earth temporarily are simply stunning..

    fun fact is, elon said the car will overshoot mars orbit and will almost reached the asteroid belt because they purposely deplete the propellant tank when they did the last engine burn (https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/961083704230674438)

    I watched it live too. Just unreal. Cant wait to see the central core smashing into the landing at 300+mph! At least now they know to put more igniter in when they do this next time. Such an epic success and streaming it live and being so inclusive is epic!

    That really is an amazing vid. Wow!

    But I shot a man in Torn, just to watch him die.

     

    The best laid plans of mice, men and faction leaders often go awry.

    Beautiful! Growing up near a flight test center I used to hear sonic booms 10x a week, I actually miss them. As a kid it kinda makes you dream.
