wtf? Elon's 'giving away' 10K Ethereum, assuming you pay some...
"As thanks for your support during the launch, I would like to give away 10,000 Etherеum in return for your commitment. Simply sеnd 0,4-2,0 Еther to the address belоw, and get 4,0-20,0 Ether on yours. Ethereum address and transactions in the real time: http://bit.do/elon-ether"

- I'm disappointed in how readily I fell for that. Thank fuck I don't have any coins.detritus
- I know, right?detritus
- Well fuck me, I'm in the wrong business.detritus
- in my defence, I had fuck all clue how much ETH is trading at the moment - if I'd realised 0.2 is around $200 I would've had alarm bells. I thought it was $20detritus
- hey drgs - that's now showing $0 - does that mean he cashed out, do you think?
He was at $59k+ when I checked :\detritus
- Ah yes - 'out' with 75k ETH.
- Sorry, '75' ETHdetritus
- Although I'm horrified about why I first posted this, I've found this all immensely interesting.detritus
- There are many of those
- It sounds unlikely to work at first, but because there so many people investing in crypto businessdrgs
- even if the share of idiots is 0,001%, someone will send you their money before or later, I'm almost tempted myselfdrgs
SpaceX gets U.S. regulator to back satellite internet plan
Elon Musk’s SpaceX, fresh off the successful launch this month of the world’s most powerful rocket, won an endorsement on Wednesday from the top U.S. communications regulator to build a broadband network using satellites.
Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai proposed the approval of an application by SpaceX to provide broadband services using satellites in the United States and worldwide.
I won't be impressed until they get a Winnibego into space.
Tom Mueller explains Merlin rocket engine:
The picture on the left, showing four rather geeky young men in snazzy sweaters at the 1997 Polish National Maths Olympiad, became one of the biggest memes on the Polish internet a decade or so ago.
Now it turns out that one of the guys is an engineer at SpaceX who created the software for the Falcon Heavy launch.

Was there any footage of the central core that didn't make it?
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!
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.
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.
