Anyone else quietly repeating the mantra, "Don't explode, don't explode, don't explode."?

I think for me it was “pleas no kaboom please no kaboom please no kaboom...”

That would not be very KSPish, I know every one wanted to see a booster go spiraling off at an angle followed by a large explosion and the "F3" screen suddenly appearing.

12 seconds. Far longer than the usual.

5 to 6 seconds, actually, from the video timestamps. :P

Perhaps they got a reading that mandated a shutdown. Perhaps there was no point in firing longer. We may or may not find out in the aftermath.

They said success. Also, they never said it was gona be 12, that's what people were reporting they estimated it to be, I think. Chris G said he thought it was 12, but that was when it was live, not timestamped... hard to tell from long distance, probably. (sorry missed actual SpaceX video... yeah, considerably shorter than 12 seconds. You are correct.

 

Launch in a week or so, so no problems. ^^^
