    And we’re waiting…

    Well, that was a bust. Maybe tomorrow.

    Felon Musk is against a union for his workers. Why are you anti-worker?

    • ± says:

      Being anti-union is being pro-worker. Unions kill opportunities and jobs in genera. This isn’t the bad old days when unions had their place and fulfilled a valuable function. That time is long gone. Now, taken collectively, non-education unions are almost as much as a negative force in the country as the NEA is all by itself.

    prolly had to wait for Harrison Ford to clear the launch area

    No number of space launches can justify his theft from the state of California and elsewhere.

    Terence Mann: The “terrible thing” you said to your father. What was it?
    Ray Kinsella: I told him I could never respect a man whose hero was a criminal.

  7. Ah_Yea says:

    The launch went off and it’s impressive.

    SpaceX does an excellent job on the presentation. Why doesn’t nasa or Bezos do the same??

    I wonder what Bezos is going to do to try and up Musk.

  8. McCullough says:

    SpaceX……the early years.

  9. Hmeyers says:

    As far as I know it launched 2 days so congrats!

    Delays are pretty normal in space launches.

  10. Slide Rule says:

    Except for the telltale end of the soft landing (where the exhaust DOES NOT suck back into the engine), I’d swear the video was running backwards!

    Good job. Good science. Good technology.

    • Slide Rule says:

      Now this deserves credit for the effort:


    • ± says:

      Your comment (video running backwards), made me realize what was wrong with this video. With near certainty it is running backwards since it makes no sense whatsoever to deploy the landing tripod only seconds before the landing when there is no longer any time to deal with a deployment issue which would create a mission failure. No real engineer would ever recommend/agree/ascribe to this.

      Months ago, Marc also posted a faked landing in rough seas on a tiny barge¹. This was done out of his fealty to Musk, or thru total ignorant and well-meaning innocence. There must be a word for the latter concept, but if so, it is eluding me now.

      The internet is full of lies, as it has been from the very beginning. Marc (along with most other sheeple on this blog) thinks that there is “fake news”, the new liberal concept he bought into. So Marc, did you just post “fake news”, or is it just another internet lie (with you being the innocent or willing vector)?

      • Bullseye says:

        Even if there were “first minute” deployment issues, the rocket can’t hover long or do a “go-around” while Musk troubleshoots the issue. Right?

        Not very elegant or techie, maybe they should land in a foam pit!

        • ± says:

          Any engineer, even an affirmative action hire, would deploy the landing struts many miles above the surface in case they got stuck or didn’t otherwise deploy properly so you would have time to “shake” them loose if that were possible.

          I hope Musk’s team of liars are reading this so they learn how to do a better job of lying. They need to vet their press releases by letting good high school physics students watch them.

      • Hrrrmmm says:

        Yeah no way is that barge big enough to hold that rocket in them kind of seas. And then tiny little legs are gonna hold that rocket up on a rocking boat LOL
        Both vids are not so great CGI.. And if it is real is a total waste of fuel to backdown a rocket ,where the hell are they putting all this fuel,

  11. TheInvisableJCD says:

    Actually they landed at the wrong place and had to go back up…


  12. Likes2LOL says:

    Straight down landings are commendable, but can it parallel park? 😉
