it is still my opinion that SpaceX will not be allowed to succeed.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

Agreed.  They will be forced to move flight testing and operations to Cape Canaveral.  Once they relocate those operations from Boca Chica, the Brandon administration will throw more road blocks in their way.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

Once Boeing kills it's crew the first time, SpaceX will be in a better negotiating position with fed.gov.

Probably not.  Musk allowing union organizing of his businesses is far more important than astronaut safety.

It seems that thing stayed on the pad for a few seconds longer than normal after engine ignition.  Maybe the blue pill took longer to take effect.  It also gimbaled out and away from the pad farther than it has before.

Yeah, I noticed that. It wobbled a bit

They said the capsule was "re-entering".  Re-entering what?  They didn't make it to space, much less orbit.

Wobbled quite a bit before it touched down on the landing pad, too.

Seemed to take longer than normal.

I thought so, too.

Looked at it again and it appeared they didn't separate until well after separation was marked on the progress bar and fa after I remember from past flights. Camera angle maybe?
Had me wondering what they were going to do if they couldn't get a separation. That is if they could do anything. Not sure the booster can land with the weight of the capsule still on top. Seems like it should but not sure what effect the extra top weight would have.
