    Default Space X Launch webcast

    Takes just 20 min to launch a rocket, land it ( for the first time in history), and deploy 11 ORBComm satellites.

    Well done Space X and Elon Musk! so much action in a time span of a leisurely coffee break

    Watched it on Youtube as well... Mind boggling the amount of math and programming involved in getting the 1st stage to land perfectly again..

    Looks good. Keep quiet about that Tesla. Somebody will go and steal it. I would say good marketing gimmick compared to just sending some cement block.

    Some reporters give a bit wrong info. That rocket is the most powerful at present but not the most powerful ever used. Saturn V was about double.

    Well done indeed.

    That car in space is such a cool idea.

    Rocket burn worked too well, Tesla not going to Mars but heading for asteroid belt. Really hope it's not going to be destroyed, would be nice if it could float in space for a few thousand ears.
