    Success!
    It was the unit that made the first successful landing last year.
    I wonder how many uses they will get out of them.

    I’m surprised how quiet this thread has been, given the incredible events of yesterday and SpaceX ‘s attempt to launch a car towards Mars.

    Here it is from a different perspective. Absolutely watch this with good headphones on, and TURN IT UP.

    Ended up talking a bit about it in the what are you watching and Tesla threads, but yeah, this is pretty awesome. All the videos of the dual landing are amazing.

    Too bad about the core, but hopefully there's surviving video, since it sounds like it was quite a spectacular touchdown.

    I just found out that the Tesla in space has a Hot Wheels car with a little spaceman stuck on the dashboard and a copy of Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy in the glovebox.

    A friend just asked me if the Falcon rocket was still in orbit, since he saw something at around midnight. It blinked on and off about every 10 seconds.
    Sorry mate, they boosted out of orbit a while ago. I think that might have been planet Qantas
