Planned for today 1:30pm ET US. http://www.spacex.com/webcast

Far from guaranteed to be a success. Should be interesting.

Just go back to your matlock and pretend the rocket doesn't exist.

We are literally trying to cum people out of the tip of a metal dick onto other planets. Our ultimate goal is that we get those planets pregnant, and they’re too filled up with people, and then they gotta make a new metal dick.

We're you clenching your butthole when it occurred?

Or was it nice and relaxed?

Honestly I was bracing myself for a lot of explosions.  I guess they learned quite a bit from their other rockets and applied it here.

And you were clenching your butthole too...

All sounds pretty homoerotic.

Rockets are the ultimate phallic symbols btw...

You seem very interested in butt holes.  Perhaps there are other forums that might serve you better in this regard.

Everyone kept going on and on about how hard it was going to be to get 27 engines to work together properly and kept comparing it to the old Soviet N-1 with its 30 engines.  I never did think that it was a fair comparison because I think that three 9 engine cores are a lot easier to handle than one 30 engine core.  But that's just me, I guess.

Yeah that's just you.

Every genuine aerospace engineer knows that having 27 engines is an insane idea...

Which is why $hpayze$ex only employs weirdo hipster CGI artists.

Ayhoo, you can all unclench your butthole now, fraud accomplished, another few million banked, etc...

That was AWESOME! The launch, the synchronized landings, "Don't Panic," everything. I wish we could have seen what happened to the core booster.

Yeah I haven't heard what happened to the core booster yet.  I think they lost communications with the drone ship to recover it.  But still, even if that was a total loss this first launch went extremely well.

I think PL's statement is correct, but incomplete. Having 27 engines is an insanely incredible idea and we got to see exactly what that kind of power looks like today.

Already told you, years ago.

You're just doing that mad AI algorithm shit where you pretend I ain't and make me go through it again, all the while shouting NO NO NO NO NO!

Because this:

I'm not sure why you think that companies getting government subsidies is a criminal act, or even a bad thing.  Governments give subsidies to lots of companies to promote certain sectors.  This is nothing new.

That's capitalism at its best. 
Create a big idea. Sell a big idea and get big money, private, government ,,,wherever.

Try it some time. It's a (kind of) free country.
