Space X Heavy Rocket Launch and Return
« on: February 06, 2018, 08:42:12 PM »
Love it or hate Tesla, Gotta hand it to Elon Musk ... guy has mojo

What a video -- makes you proud that space X is based in our own backyard

If any of you are Tintin fans - do you remember the rocket Prof Calculus designed that lands vertically back on the earth - the booster return is exactly like that ! Man, was Herge a visionary  ahead of his time !

Seeing the 2 boosters seperate and land in sync was so cool.
Even with the single booster landing having become routine, seeing those two first stages land was something special.

Really makes you excited for the future. Can’t wait to see BFR in action.

Interesting how we are seeing a revival of many of the ideas from the 50s .  Its getting to be a lot of fun watching tech startups do something to actually  advance technology  than just creating another stupid app  for ordering nachos in your pjs
