<chortles> But I deleted my 'cafeteria' post when they cut it out - now it's back.

Those first stage landings are awesome! Go SpaceX!

On the globe that gave us birth
Let us rest our eyes on the fleecy skies

Yeah, no way to re-use the second stage yet, as far as I know. That landing was beautiful though! I wish you could've watched when they were doing the first barge landings and nobody had landed a first stage yet. That was exciting!
I probably would've loved that. :mrgreen: I know from Space Engine and Elite Dangerous (mostly Space Engine though) exactly how hard it is to pull off a landing that perfectly.

...I was cracking up at this one guy on the other stream who was claiming in the chat that the whole thing was CGI. :lol: You can go and watch it yourself on-site, you know. :P

Here you go!

In a massive nod to Iain M. Banks, the two barges are named Of Course I Still Love You and Just Read the Instructions.

SpaceX lofted the X-37B today, and landed the first stage successfully again. An interesting little toy, the X-37B
