I made a rocket like SN8 when I was about ten years old.  I can understand why SpaceX may be having a few problems today.  I had terrible trouble getting the tin foil to stick to the cardboard tube.

It's worth thinking about: the cheapest commercial launch system in the world is also rated for human spaceflight, and it is partially reusable. Falcon 9 is really one of the most remarkable rockets in the history of the space age.

Back to la Lune soon, then the Red Planet.  Might yet realise a boyhood dream of man on another planet.

I suspect we will have the conspiracy theorists piping up soon about the video going off just when the F9 landed. 

I thoroughly enjoyed every single second of that.
