    They're not even trying to land and recover this one simply because it's already used once before and "we need to make room" for Block 5. What a problem to have - too many rockets. :D

    Well well, Peace and out. ;) The launches are getting kind of boring, not a bad thing. Until next time....

    The landings are what grab me every time. Just like it always should have been as in 1950's sci fi movies. :D:hyper::D The double landing of the Falcon Heavy boosters was incredible. Can't wait to see the BFR.

    I checked out the careers page. I didn't see a category for astronaut, so I checked out the IT jobs. :D
    It would be cool to work for SpaceX, and I see some jobs I am initially qualified for.

    I'm surprised they were able to launch with the payload of Musk's ego.

    Should be a live outdoor show tomorrow night for some of you left coasters out there... ;)

    (not just the launch, first west coast land landing attempt, it's coming back again!)

    I'll post a link when the livestream is on, if I can remember to. But Space.com and Spacex.com itself will have the livestream, it'll be on YouTube too, just a question of finding it in time when it's on...

    I'm sure there'll be an article out there somewhere tomorrow on where and when to look with your own eyes (and the visible range, I've got no idea how far that is).
