  2. How is SpaceX so cool and competent, while Tesla is slowly killing itself? Don’t they still have the same CEO?

  4. Wonderful, but should’ve happened 30 years ago.

  5. I think the significance of these successes by Spacex are lost on those who did not experience the Space race back in the 60′s and 70′s. When there was a launch back then it was really a risky venture as pretty much all of the technology was experimental and so far ahead of the curve. That we managed to get men to the moon and back and did not lose any in the process is amazing.

    Now, we see Spacex not only launch rockets but they manage to land them and use them over. If that had been a criteria back during the Apollo missions we would have never gotten to the moon.

    I am in awe of the consistency of the Spacex launches for the remarkable technological achievements. No other organization on earth is operating at as high a level.

    Lastly, just because they do it over and over does not mean that we should not take a moment to realize how big their succeses really are.

  6. I’ve been watching assorted space adventures since Sputnik. Putting satellites into orbit, men into space, landing on the moon repeatedly, all great steps advancing science and technology. But bringing the boosters back to be recycled and reused, and landing them safely side by side, that’s just freakin’ AWSOME!

  7. We had to let technology catch up to our dreams!

  8. @5 Lest we forget the ones who gave their lives in our quest for the moon.
    Two of the three Apollo 1 crew who died in that launchpad fire were Gemini Astronauts, and Major Michael J. Adams was killed in an X15 flight.
