This probably belongs in the space exploration forum rather than the aviation...

There are only a few subjects that I dont ever even bother discussing.
They are so ridiculous that I won't waste my time.

Moon landing was fake.
The holocaust never happened.
Dinosaur are fake.
Flat earth....

Iridium was named after the Greek goddess "Iris" who was the messenger of the gods.

There’s a decent SpaceX documentary on Netflix, popcorn time and cafe movie- to name a few, that covers why SpaceX is doing what they are doing, how close they came to losing everything and haulting the rocket programs.
It’s a good intro for anyone new or perhaps unfamiliar with the tribulations of SpaceX.
I recommend it.

On topic today’s launch was another step towards creating a solid foundation for space travel.
In the documentary it states that if we want to be able to afford space travel, reusing rockets is fundamental in that advancement.
If 1 rocket can be reused 1000 times, it cuts the costs associated with getting to space, down to $60,000.
Pretty interesting info.
