Hate the idea of more dots in space, but oh do I love a good rocket launch! 🙂

And to watch the booster return to land and be reused again makes me feel like a kid in the 60's and 70's again. I can dream of what's to come.

Just watched the launch and the return of the booster and yes it is amazing how it all works but the thought of another trail of satellites to contend with is not a nice thought.

The second stage passed almost overhead here on it's way to orbit. Shame it wasn't dark and clear. Would have been worth a look. No doubt the new batch, once hatched,  will be well placed for UK fans on coming evenings!

It looks like I just missed another Starlink launch this afternoon.

For those that have taken to sticking pins in voodoo dolls of Falcon 9 rockets, it worked a little bit. The first stage landed in the Atlantic not far from the landing barge.

The second stage performance was "nominal", so notwithstanding an act of God/meteor strike/in-orbit collision, it looks like another 60 lickle lights are going to brighten our nights.

It sort of makes me sad, all this need for so many satellites, but what is the alternative? I cannot see one without a major change in human nature and the desire to have what the neighbour has. :sad:

These launches always impress me though, just see how far humanity has come, in such a short time! :grin:
