Space Exploration megathread

Since a number of cool things are happening in space exploration these days, we'll widen the scope of this thread a smidge. Conversation about all things space exploration are welcome, whether it be from NASA, SpaceX, ULA, Blue Origin, or anyone else. Chances are most of the discussion will still be about SpaceX since they love to make things public and fun, but nothing's off limits. I'll eventually get around to modifying the OP to include resources for other companies too, but in the meantime, feel free to post any cool stuff you run across.

Damn. I missed it.

So cool how the after Stage 1 separation the spent rocket falls away, then goes vertical, then descends.

Stuck the landing, but too hard. "We falcon punched the barge." Can't wait for that footage.

Good stuff here:

Hot damn! That looks awesome. They'll stick it next time.

EDIT: Looks like it's a few degrees off? Maybe 10?

It was swinging quite a bit coming into the barge. Gotta get that stabilized.

Better quality + explosion.



If you turn on high res, you can see the thrusters at the top trying to keep it upright. Just not quite.

I took an advanced College Physics course. We had to plot a trajectory and landing on the moon. This was pre-internet so there was no cheating. Those landings are so damn hard to do because of weight/mass/height and trying to keep the center.
