What does one have to do with the other?

I don't particularly care for the man, but am ecstatic that the US is back.

It would take a special kind of imbecile to wish for failure, because of dislike for an individual.

Why would you think that?

Tesla Is a fricken joke of a company..
Space x is not.

NASA has also become a joke.

Proof positive that perseverance pays off...Even if it only takes 20 or 30 years.

Now, I think it’s time to get back in touch with some old “rocketeer” friends of mine and get to work on smashing the next “It can’t be done!” glass ceiling:

Getting to orbit without a “rocket”.

I think I’ve got another 20 or so good years left in me!

Well, I mean it's not like they didn't rehearse it. The rehearsals all worked fine (If you include the cargo missions as dry runs for the crew missions). I'd have been surprised if they failed.

Congratulations to all the involved!

Was this a manual or an automatic docking?

I think it was half and half.

Did I actually say you? There are a few who have a creepy hatred for musk in here, unless you are one if them, I was not talking about you.

They docking itself was autonomous. They did use manual control at one point for a test though.

Another milestone.

Tesla has never hit a production or sales goal and doesn't make a profit.
They have also never developed a new technology.
What they are is an environmentalist shiny pony.

And yes.. Nasa has been a bureaucratic mess since they developed the failed space shuttle program.

Space x on the other hand has made great strides.
I give credit where it's due.

Bureaucratic mess, yes, but I'm not sure I'd go as far as saying NASA's Space Shuttle program was a "failed program". They did launch 135 successful missions.

They also killed more astronauts than any other NASA program.
The original plan was to have a shuttle ready to launch a month after its last mission and to be a less expensive method than disposable rockets.

So it was mostly a failure and it set the space program back years. They are still trying to catch up.

So far, so good. I won't breath easily until they're safe back on the ground.

You can thank Congressional interference for about half of those STS-related deaths, not NASA. At least, not NASA entirely.

The STS Challenger was destroyed, killing all aboard, due to a failed O-ring that was meant to seal two fuel sections on one of the Solid Rocket Boosters (SRB’s).

The original design of the STS SRB’s did not require O-rings because, instead of being cast in segments which where then joined together, they were cast as a single piece.

However, in a effort to “pass a little pork” to a Congressional representative from, Utah, if I remember correctly, the SRB contract went to Thiakol ; which would not be able to transport a completed SRB from UT to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Hence the “segmented” construction, the need for the O-rings, and, ultimately the loss of the shuttle and death of her crew.
