  1. Space X is the only rocket program I pay attention to, the reusability is absolutely astonishing

  2. It truly is wonderful. Elon got the starting technology from NASA, but then his team perfected it. I hope Mr. Musk keeps his eye on Mars, and what the Starship's full potential could be, instead of getting side tracked by this regretful Twitter purchase; . Wasn't it in December of last year when he said "All hands on deck", and now he blew $44 Billion on Twitter? If I were a SpaceX employee I would feel a little let down; because apparently it wasn't that critical after all if he had $44 Billion to blow on the frivolous purchase of Twitter. And for what, so we could listen to more and more insane conspiracy theories? People are getting sick of the Qanon conspiracy gurus like Trump and others.

  3. I was out for a morning run yesterday and this caught me completely off guard around 5:45ish. I saw it and thought WW3 has started.

  4. Im sure SpaceX staff are all Aliens 😂
    Amazing as per!🤌🏾🔥🔥Love from NZ 🇳🇿

  5. Today I have just visited Cape Kennedy space centre…and seen the Saturn v and other rockets. They were a fantastic achievement…but huge cost in staging which all got dropped into the sea. To see this re usable booster you realise what a great leap forward this is. Hats off to Space X

  6. Does anyone know if the original NASA engineers knew about Max-Q or did they have to learn from a mistake?

  7. why humans aren't concentrating on earth and all we are doing is space stuff, there are so many problems on earth that we should solve. Im not saying we shouldnt do space exploration, we should do it, but we should concentrate more time on earth

  8. So cool that this first stage recovery is so common place now that it's a basically a nonevent. Great job perfecting this technology SpaceX!

  9. Never thought this would get so routine that I start checking my phone during a rocket launch.. kinda sad

  10. There used to be massive cheers and claps from heaps of people in the background when the booster safely landed… now just one person can be heard, half-heartedly clapping lol… So used to it now I guess 😅… /tounge in cheek/
