Space X - Falcon

The reused Falcon just successfully touched down on the drone ship. Thats pretty fucking epic.

Wonder how many times they'll re-use it to see what it can handle.

That entry burn and landing burn and close ups are cool as fuck.

Another successful launch and landing. Up and down in 8 minutes that just boggles my mind.

What gets me is how quickly this has become almost routine. Two years ago they were lobbing things into space and having the stages splash down. Now they recover and refly them and it seems almost​ absurd that others don't.

Heh aye. Although Blue Origin has managed a landing(s) , that's a sub orbital craft. The true test will be the Falcon Heavy test flight this year and whenever they do the first crew mission from Falcon 9 / Dragon.

Although the the sight of a heavy touching down safely would be rather epic.

The Heavy is basically three Falcon 9s though? So it touches down as three modules, rather than one big one. Although, it does look very cool.

I wonder if this is a bit of creative wording there , i'm sure it works perfectly well as a jump suit / internal wear , but sans life support package you don't see anyone doing a space walk in that thing any time soon ?

Making it look easy now. And that tracking cam tech in itself is amazing given the speeds and distances.

It's rapidly becoming routine. I'm quite looking forward to seeing the block 5s come online and hopefully see them recover the fairings and possible the second stage. Exciting times and that's not including anything BFR related.

25th successful landing and the first successful block 5. Still awesome.

edit: I'll still be nervous as shit for the first manned launch , but that should be this year I think ?

Read somewhere block 5 should be completely reusable for 10 flights. Just refuel and go. Utterly amazing.

Yeah and a lifespan of about 100 flights with maintenance. If they can achieve anywhere close to 10 without maintenance that's just spectacular.

I saw the reports of this, launch and eight minutes later it's back on the pad! This almost sounded like it was becoming routine.

Yeah that's a cool effect. Theres a number of time-lapse photos of Falcon launches that make great backgrounds.
