Dragon 2 hold down static fire test in preparation for tomorrows pad abort test. Thats what a rocket capsule should look like. Too bad they aren’t doing propulsive landing.

    That’s NOT what a rocket capsule should look like. It uses too much FUEL! Hasn’t anyone heard about PARACHUTES?! How about WINGS or even giant balls of air like NASA used on the Mars explorer probe(s)?

    Seriously. When the fuck will these idiot rich guys learn and try to work WITH nature instead of burning gas trying to look cool landing some useless 1950’s-designed rocket capsule vertically? When will WE learn to STOP funding these idiot rich guys’ play time? People are literally DYING right here on planet earth and these rich guys want to play BUCK RODGERS — at OUR EXPENSE?!

    … If you don’t think some of YOUR taxes are going towards this shit, you’re a MORON! But even if you’re right and no tax dollars are used in this crap, who the fuck do you think PAYS for it?! (Hint: it’s NOT those rich assholes.)

      Elon Musk must be doing something very right to have your ilk so unreasonably mad!

      As usual, the most telling part is your droll and pointless “Even if I am wrong I am right” last paragraph.

      … “If you don’t think some of YOUR taxes are going towards this shit, … But even if you’re right and no tax dollars are used in this crap”

        Cult followers should be assigned special names.

        • noname says:

          What exactly is the cult I am following and what’s your accusation basis?

          You’re always just a mouth piece of nihilism, continually spouting ineffectual intellectual absurdities complete with a continual lack of originality. Sad, your lack of mental & mouth hygiene have decayed that brain you may have had! Even the DU zombies out smart you!

  2. NewFormatSux says:

    Why would they want to test aborting? Shouldn’t they be trying to succeed?

    How about just use a parachute and pair it with jetskis(powered by a PowerWall of course)

    • noname says:

      Idiot, launch safety is a requirement!

      I hear Elon Musk is looking for test dummies; you have all the qualification and your nihilism makes you expendable!

    I’m surprised Elon isn’t all over this instead trying to land on a stream of flames.

    If you want a hoot, play the video with captioning on. Some of the translations are hysterical.

    Also, the external shots from the capsule was with a GoPro camera!

    With NASA, that would be a cool million spent, with Musk, it’s a trip to Walmart.
