I can see Russia from my car!
LOL who came here to live when he was already well off( actually grew up going to private schools).
USA is back in space and using private industry no less. Space shots will be cheaper, more efficient, and better.
I'm going to assume this is real and not a photoshop, but don't have any proof.
It was reported to be an actual shot but the lack of reporting on the loss of the middle booster makes me think there were no joirnalists there.
I'm assuming it's Russian agitprop until Mueller tells me different.
Imagine whoever brought those boosters back in missing the wastebasket from 2 feet away immediately afterward.
Yeah, but crank up the bass and you'll feel it just like you do here on the ground, and the vibration will create sound that travels inside your space suit.
This is IMO one of the coolest things we've ever done. suck it big gov
I think it is all pretty freakin amazing myself.
Read a trilogy by A. E.van Vogt as a young teenager and was immediately hooked.
NASA's been putting up rockets for 60 years now and never even tried to pull off anything like those booster landings. Musk nailed it the first time he tried. Seeing is believing. Private enterprise is the way of the future in space, not least because the whiners and complainers can't get in the way.
Thats SLC 34 in foreground, adds some poignancy to this spectacular view from ULA- SLC 37
Love the sound they give off.
Very cool video!
That was incredible
He actually came here as a student to attend the University of Pennsylvania where he earned dual degrees in physics and economics.
Obviously a successful launch was very important to SpaceX but I think it’s coming out now just how important it was. Both the Air Force and NASA turned down a free launch and the Tesla Roadster was a backup plan. It’s possible neither entity had a mission to support but I think it’s more likely they just simply didn’t have enough faith until seeing a successful launch to risk their property, even for free.
