Holy mother of space-x launches, batman!

Post by Mordak » Fri Feb 9, 14:53 2018

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wbSwFU6tY1c <----- 35 minute long space-x channel launch live stream :rainbowsmile:

There's a caaaar man, driving in the sky! Hell of an idea for a payload test hey? I can imagine Elon Musk is still running around his patch of the woods with the most massive nerd boner humanity has ever seen. I thought it was awesome how everything just synced so well and went according to plan (dat fuel booster landing omg), even if the core was lost/found/scuttled.

You guys geeking out as well? It's more than a small step for man- it's an amazing leap forward in time! We're starting to catch up to our dreams. Although he totally should have had four mannequins, wearing different coloured turtle necks and singing "Toot Toot Chugga Chugga" instead of Bowie. I don't know what you guys thought of Bowie but I liked the music, not the man.

Same as spacefem asked before- did anyone here see it or watch it live? I don't get much tech out here in nowhere land, just the old school crappy satellite dish that has a million versions of the same. fucking. channels ;)

Streamed it live! It was so awesome - I thought the dual landing was even cooler than the launch itself. I'm surprised that it worked so well, considering this was their first launch and everything.
Bork is too lazy to bother thinking up a witty signature. :polarbear:

Sorry rowan! I meant it to be an inclusive "guys".

Space-x is all shiny and new and getting all the publicity lately but they wouldn't have gotten anywhere without all the research done by all our brilliant ladies and gentlemen over at NASA. ESPECIALLY the ladies- I know a lot about the woman who did the calculations for the moon landings, and so do you. Other people might not, so here's a link :) https://futurism.com/meet-the-woman-who ... n-landing/

Without her, we would still be stuck on earth. And without people like you, rowan, so many people wouldn't know anything about our universe at all.

Sending loves <3

I'm torn between finding this extremely cool and it really bugging me that I heard they put no scientific equipment on the car.. so basically all it will do for all that effort is take pictures (not even with a telescope). I know it's a for profit business but come on guys! the good of all mankind!
