I am so glad I was able to sneak this in before work yesterday. Definitely got choked up and so so proud for everyone involved, the US, and humanity. This is fucking exciting!

I think maybe possibly my fiancee is beginning to understand the gravity of this but it’s annoying to me that she doesn’t care more about it. I had to explain why this launch was so monumental and game-changing 100 different ways. She’s sooooorta gettin there.

Hell yes! This is next generation space flight now. The rocket flew them up there and then came back and landed. Fucking beautiful. Plus the Dragon capsule is fully automated, though Bob and Doug were steering it themselves this time just for testing purposes.

Keep at her! Hahaha. I've been working on my wife for years on SpaceX and she finally got it yesterday...even a little emotional I must say.

SpaceX just had another flight to put up more satellites and they've made history again!

For those that didn't see this back in 2016. Fucking love Elon's commitment, perseverance, dedication to making humanity more space bound.

I do not understand their opposition to this. Legit cannot come up with a reason. Sad to see. Good for him to keep with it

On the flip, it must suck to be proven that fucking wrong about it

Another step closer to Mars!

This is the ship they are building to take supplies and people to the red planet.

First time to get it up in the air.

Here is better video footage from SpaceX itself. Awesome cam POV from inside as it is landing.

SpaceX

I’m interested in more of the debrief from Bob and Doug’s test flight, but I’m sure SpaceX doesn’t want us to hear that until they make the adjustments successfully for Crew-1 later this year.

Also, something I could never get answered: did the trunk burn up in the atmosphere or did they leave it to contribute to the already overwhelming amount of orbiting space junk? Cuz that’s a big deal.

Additionally, I know they can “use the restroom” in the capsule during that 19hr ride, but I have to also assume they have to schedule their intake quite stringently and likely have Imodium and antidiuretics on board for the hours that they have to stay seated and focus, yeah? No idea how they would do it, but I don’t suppose there is anything built into their suits for that, is there? Additionally, some of those spacewalks are fairly lengthy and I imagine they planned for things like that.

Same here.

Can't answer your questions, but did you see they had time to satellite prank call?

Washington’s state military, which includes its emergency response division, began using Starlink user terminals in early August to bring internet service to areas devastated by wildfires.
Quote:
“Starlink easily doubles the bandwidth” in comparison, Hall said, noting that he’s seen more than 150% decreases in latency. “I’ve seen lower than 30 millisecond latency consistently,” he said.
Quote:
By comparison, Hall emphasized that it took him between five and 10 minutes to set up and connect a Starlink terminal. And a single person can set up one of the devices: “It doesn’t require a truck and a trailer and a whole lot of other additional equipment,” Hall said.

“I have spent the better part of four or five hours with some satellite equipment trying to get a good [connection]. So, to me, it’s amazing,” Hall added.
