  1. Huh. The 'stick' that pushes off the upper stage apparently gets retracted. Entry burn looked nice. Aww... lost stage one video. Soggy deck. Landing good!
  2. Pop out the waffles. Nice view of fairing sep.
  3. You can see the rocket wobbling back and forth slightly in the closeups of the fairing, if you look closely. Liftoff
  4. Starlink launch feed is live! Let's go with getting more Starlink satellites up there so I can get Starlink Internet! T minus 10 minutes. 4th launch for this booster... it practically still has that new rocket smell. Fairing halves are being reused for 5th and 4th times.
  5. I'm very happy to see that the tensioning is going well, since it was the step I was most worried about.
  6. Both mid-booms appear to be fully extended. Next step: Tensioning the layers...supposed to take about two days.
  7. Given the number of U.S. taxpayers, and if we split the cost evenly, I apparently have about $70 riding on this launch. Seems like a lot more.
  8. Liftoff MECO. Stage 2 ignition good. Entry burn good. Booster landed. Both onboard and drone ship video of landing.
  9. Turksat 5B coverage has music... And Turksat 5B coverage is live. T minus 14 minutes Booster’s 3rd flight. Second flight for fairing.
  10. Shiny, one might even say. Commas are your friend.
  11. Zero-G indicator is a tortoise. ...or a turtle. I'm no expert on reptiles.
  12. MECO. Stage 2 good. Interesting exhaust streaming past first stage as the grid fins deploy. Are they doing the first stage turnaround differently (slowly) nowadays? First stage entry burn good. First stage is on the ship!
  13. Launch in 10 minutes. Time to get excited. And we have liftoff!
  14. SpaceX launch coverage is live. But no need to get too excited yet... launch is in 4 hours and 15 minutes.
