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

Those first stage landings are awesome! Go SpaceX!

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
