Posted this already in another thread, but it's worth posting again:



The colour satellite image is from Hinawari-8, and the weather system is off south Australia.

The rocket launched, the Earth is a sphere, get over it.

I'll almost guarantee you the booster failed to land safely and they're trying to figure out why right now.


People doing their work. The most logical explanation. I agree.

It was real , you cant fake stuff like that , landing 2 boosters syncronised.

thousands of people went to the Cape , Millions where at home watching the live stream , this launch has been highly anticipated by millions of people.

Space X today has brought the future to us , stop doubting please and enjoy this wonderfull experience.

The landing engines failed on booster 3. It hit the drone ship at over 300 mph.

It was beautiful to see the boosters land on those platforms in tandem. Like rocket ballet. And it was so perfect it did look fake. But it was real. beautiful and real.

It apparently beat the hell out of the drone ship too. They said two of three engines were damaged in the impact.

No, they haven't been. But the timing was remarkably coincidental, and there's a whole lot of nothing going on about the booster landing.



Haha I had to get to work but I see it crashed into the drone pad. Explains the signal loss.

Umm...that was weird...
Not sure what to think about that.
Interesting.

It looks like the inside of the fairing. For some reason they went back to the fairing jettison on the video, and showed it opening. You can see the seam of the two halves of the fairing, and when it separates the camera is overexposed for a second.

The center rocket ran out of propellant, and impacted the water 100 yards from the ship. The impact damaged two thrusters and sent shrapnel onto the deck.

I had no trouble with the launches and landings, but I'm still trying to decipher my feelings about the Roadster and Starman actually being up there.

I always attributed the cut-offs to futile battery life as opposed to hiding things. Who knows. *shrug*

I knew the tinfoil hatters would be out as soon as this thing got off the ground. That youtuber can rest easy in his Marvel pyjamas knowing he has saved he world. Meanwhile, real people are doing proper work pushing the boundaries.

I assure you it is real!

Stood right here 20 miles from the Cape and watched it go up, watched the boosters come down. Pretty awesome!

The cheering is from happy SpaceX employees!!



4 pages in, and unless I missed it, not a single "Fakey" or "Flattard" has even acknowledged your reply.

I'm a lifelong Automation and Systems Engineer, and a PLC and microcontroller code-monkey, with more than 30 years of real-world automation experience, and have designed hardware and written code for some pretty massive civilian automation systems, and I'm talking about REALLY yanking and banking. Every day. For those that aren't familiar with that field, it is mostly stuff like factory automation systems, warehouse sorting systems, etc. A good example is USPS, FedEx, or UPS package sorting systems, or automotive production-lines, and that kind of stuff.

I'm really familiar with how mechanical and electrical systems work in the field, and I can tell you straight-up that what SpaceX pulled off today, with the near hat-trick of booster landings, is impressive on a level that is, to be frank, near miraculous. I'm not a big Elon Musk fan, and in my opinion, Tesla's cars are extremely overrated for use in the field, although MASSIVELY impressive on a technical level , at least in a laboratory setting,

It was a significant step today, and maybe it''ll finally light a fire under the asses of the other companies that have heavy lift boosters in development stage. With all the silly hype involved with sending a frakking CAR to Mars aside, I guess it's a lot cooler than a water-ballast payload for testing purposes.

It's LEO payload capacity is still less than 1/3 of the Saturn V, but it's a hell of an encouraging start.

So the car apparently overshot the Mars area and will end up going near Ceres in its orbit. They already have two launches ordered for this year. One of which is an Air Force solar sail experiment.

I watched that video. I hope that youtuber does not breed but by the looks of him I should think there is not much chance that he will.

How cool is this whole car in space thing? Pure genius. I just love it!

So, they're saying that the new orbit it's in will have Jupiter ejecting the car from the solar system over the next 10,000 years, instead of going close to Mars and staying in the solar system.
