I am!!!!
Apparently it's twice as powerful as the next best rocket and Mr Musk says hopefully it won't destroy the launchpad!!!!
Reminds me of my 4.2 SC!!!! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If we all point our RR's in the same direction and accelerate at the same time can we turn back time?

Just wow... amazing stuff


Hope the middle bit (technical term there) landed ok. But the two side boosters landing together, how very cool was that!

Wow oh wow oh wow!!!!!!
Truly amazing!!!! The most powerful rocket since Saturn 5 is sending his first Tesla car to orbit around Mars for the next million years or so!

Did you see the 2 booster rockets return to Earth and land on their pads upright simultaneously?

fantastic viewing, got both my kids together 12 & 8 and they was amazed by it, though they don't really know about the saturn 5 rocket etc

but watching the boosters return, jet engine to a a stop in unison was great, just hope the core landed ok and that will be 100% success Bow down Bow down

To be honest, even if the core missed and plopped into the sea, wouldn’t be the end of the world... the launch was awesome but the two side boosters landing, that was something else.

Again! Again! Laughing

Wow. What a spectacular technological success that was! Can't help thinking what a crazy old world we are forced to live in where intelligent hardworking engineers can bring off something like that. Meanwhile the pathetic bell ends that run most of our world are busily squabbling over Brexit, invading each others countries and killing one another over ridiculous beliefs in non-existent supernatural beings. 2008 MY Java Black TDV8 HSE

What he said ^

As a bonus for Musk, that’s done the sale of Tesla cars no harm whatsoever. The showrooms will be busy tomorrow.
