Default Space X Launch

That was cool.

That is all. Can't wait to see the flat earth folk dispute it...

Yeah that was pretty epic. Especially the boosters landing gracefully. Have they confirmed what happened to the core yet?

Still cool regardless though. There's folk can't reverse park a car, yet they've reversed two boosters with a starting speed of 1000km/h+

I heard it didn't have enough fuel left to decelerate and was doing 500km/h when it hit the sea.

Only one of the 3 engines that needed to fire, fired.
It pancaked into the ocean at 300m/sec....damaged the drone ship too.
