- I bet this offsets Tesla’s carbon footprint. Seriously how much fuel was needed to get that in space. Doesn’t it cost like millions to get tiny satellites up?err
- you think the whole point of the launch was only to put a car into space? lolkona

In about 30 years time, some alien cunt is going to rock up in this knackered Tesla, drop it off on the Whitehouse lawn with a note saying 'you left the keys in'.
RIP Central Core. We hardly knew ya.
- Too bad that the most important and expensive portion of the rocket is lost.utopian
- Heard Musk say the centre core was being replaced anyway and the 2 boosters were more important. Possibly spin.BusterBoy
- They were all due to be retired before Block 5 cores come online - it was just the most important component to 'look at and check', not re-use.detritus
Ever wonder what all the 'smoke' is in the last few seconds of count down? It's water. For sound suppression. "A sound suppression system was installed on the pads and the mobile launcher platform to protect the orbiter and its payloads from being damaged by acoustical energy reflected from the platform during liftoff."
Truely amazing all the engineering solutions that have been made over the years since 1903 when The Wright brothers made their first flight.
Wonderful how it all adds up to a Tesla car with a dummy in it listening to David Bowie orbiting our solar system.
I KNEW the booster feeds were the same!
They've updated the feed to show both side boosters' footage.
I'm annoyed that I managed to convince myself / bullshit that they were indeed different. Mindless drone.
Among MANY other things SpaceX got right with this, was the streaming broadcast, production, and how entertaining it all was. The little timeline along the youtube player was so simple, but really smart to do. Just watched it again, and FUCKING HELL THIS WAS COOL!
