  1. 3:19 is that the re-entry for the 2nd stage when it burns up? I have seen some videos of this elsewhere that look kind of interesting. Maybe Raw can explain this on a SpaceWeek sometime

  2. Nice launch but boo Airbus for robbing us of the satellite release. This world has way too many trust issues.

  3. Will you for Gods sake STOP telling us what "Max Q" is. Everytime they launch anything you feel the need to explain "Max Q" again. I've been hearing it for 60 goddamn years…enough!

  4. 19:15 What was that sort of white or shiny colored item floating from the bottom of the screen to the top towards the left hand side of the screen?
