Did you guys see this!?!



Elon tweeted after:

@elonmusk
Mars, here we come!!
Why it exploded on the landing:

Quote:

@elonmusk
Fuel header tank pressure was low during landing burn, causing touchdown velocity to be high & RUD, but we got all the data we needed! Congrats SpaceX team hell yeah!!

I remember Elon mentioning this awhile ago, but it's awesome to actually see it in practice.

Why these motors look awfully familiar so cool seeing ⁦@Tesla hardware on @spacex rockets!!! This is a Model 3 drive unit. Not sure if it’s to drive the flaps or something else.

Bonnie has been an owner since the early Roadster days and is well connected within the Tesla circle. She is one of the first few to try out the new Starlink internet since she lives in a more remote area in Washington.

Thought I would share these are it shows just how good the first version of Starlink is compared to legacy companies:

@bonnienorman
I was planning on running #Starlink in parallel w legacy provider for at least a couple months, but the performance is so inarguably better (even in a snowstorm), I'm dropping legacy in the next week.
Quote:
Everything in the house is now on #Starlink. Previously useless internet-connected tv in bedroom now without signal drops. Same w Peloton bike sessions. Annd.... no technician for install, just unbox, plug in & online.

This is the way.

They’ll get it together on Starship, I’m not worried. They got pretty damn close this time with that slick landing and certainly learned a lot more in the process

SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket — the same booster type that once sent the "Starman" mannequin to space in a Tesla Roadster — will send the Volatiles Investigating Polar Exploration Rover (VIPER) to the moon, on private company Astrobotic's lunar landing system.

And next Thursday is supposed to be the Crew-2 launch:
