I used to be a Musk fan, not anymore. I'm surprised a billionaire can't afford to be polite and respectful.

Me neither, I suspect people like him are so used to "achieving" that a real specialist disagreeing with them is hard to take. While not in any way decrying his achievements he has always seemed to me to be a bit of a dilettante throwing money to achieve his ambitions.

I was asleep during the launch, totally forgot after a late night waiting in vane for the clouds to clear. Watched the catch up but didn't seem to have the razzmatazz of recent launches.

Commentary was a bit feeble, lacked immediacy.

They still haven't worked out that a bit of blu-tacxk to stop the USB cables on their webcams vibrating loose might help.

They never replied to my tweet suggesting a drone mounted camera to film the landings - I suspect they want to be able to cut the feed if things go awry without raising suspicion so a bit of unreliability is good...

I knew it wasn't going to happen today when the LA operative said 'This is our 122nd unsuccessful launch..."

Quack Quack Oops.

Amazing, the power, the engineering, the science, dedication, what a spectacle. I was nervous but in the end awe struck again. Loved the coincidence of the commentary by Patrick Moore!!
