Default Re: SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket Launch today

its interesting to see parts of the rocket on a remote control to be able to land back precisely where they are anticipated to land.

i dont know anything about this stuff but it seems they want to use those rocket boosters again. If so, i wouldnt want to be on a used booster...i want mine fresh.

Most powerful, for now, but not the most powerful ever. For US rockets, that title belongs to the Saturn V. When it goes online, the new SLS will be #1.

I looked it up. The main rocket failed the landing. But otherwise the launch went as expected.

Pretty awesome overall.

I am ecstatic at the prospects of speeding up the space tourism and mars colonization. There is a lot of answers out there in those stars and space.

This whole thing was also a brilliant marketing move for Tesla. A superbowl add would not have bought this much publicity. The whole world just watched a Tesla being launched into space.

Of course the whole thing could have blown up on the launchpad. His risk / high reward. Say what you will about Elon Musk - but the guy thinks big.

The booster rocket landings were sick.

Game changer in many ways.

Nice to see a major accomplishment other than social media for a change.
