    Why can’t they just throw them up on a FH? doesnt need to be NASA approved if they’re private companies? It’s literally like me paying my mate to drive me somewhere and back

    4am in the morning for myself - not enough incentive to get up and watch it

    Weird seeing one without the grid fins and legs now! Stinking rocket too too probably not helped by that interstage though

    Holy moley my excitement just went through the roof! Im off to Disney in October through November so that means I get to see a FH launch as I’ll be in Florida! If my luck hold out!!

    I understand why, but it was visibly quicker, reminded me a bit of the OP FH launch. Awesome to watch, and a cracking camera angle too

    Looks a lot cleaner than previous blocks! Was it just me or did it just up and leave that pad quicker than previously? cant wait for a B5Heavy!

    Ive lost count of how many times I’ve been waiting for an atlas launch and it gets held for some reason. Id much rather wait a day than see it explode

    What’s bezos’ claim?

    Makes sense I suppose - it gathers data. also are my maths wrong... 300 predicted falcon flights before retirement, each block 5 booster can do 100 flights with periodic maintenance. Does that mean they’re only building 4 or 5 block 5 boosters? Or as little as 3 being as they could in theory do them all...?

    What does the last one mean?

    Needs black fairings and that black pinstripe going all the way down (stage 2 & 1) and that would look proper

    Who cares? We would get to watch 13 Falcon heavies!
