    Good god that was one of the worst live broadcasts tonight tho.
    The cheers from below plus the 9 different people all trying to talk was pretty bad.
    They need to separate the broadcast booth from the crowd and lose like 5 talking heads.
    Other than that was an awesome launch if anyone watched.

    Also Santii, anal probes have been a thing since the 50's silly!

    Got to see some people seeing their first Falcon go up live at night.

    If you have only seen expendable rockets go up, a Falcon 9 looks like it's 1 sec from blowing up a couple of seconds into the launch. You can see stage separations at night but they are faint. When the Falcon booster goes to separate it looks like the vehicle is on fire and for split second like it cleaves in two. Then it looks like two rockets are going up for a little bit.

    With this PornHub should be capable of actually turning their old marketing stunt into reality (if you remember the "news" few years ago). Expensive, but not that much that they couldn't afford it.

    I hope you are in it for the story, because you won't get much use out of it otherwise.
    Edit: I guess female only/solo shows could be a thing.

    MMO-C should be glad that the British Empire is no more, because they'd want a piece of all the copium trade here.
    Angry players come to the forums to complain about the game... but what loser only comes to the forums to complain about the forums and its users?

    Great write up on the differences, the stark differences, between the two amateur hour billionaires skips into the upper atmosphere vs the profession, who sent four people into space for three days.

    To put it another way, the Virgin Galactic flight reached a peak altitude of 53.5 miles and lasted about an hour. Blue Origin’s voyage reached an altitude of 66 miles but lasted just 11 minutes.

    SpaceX’s all-civilian flight, which launched from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida late Wednesday, reached a 363 mile altitude within hours and the lucky crew will spend three whole days in space. SpaceX is doing more for the sector too, pioneering the use of reusable rockets and ferrying astronauts to the International Space Station.

    If it was the SpaceX one, the people cheering in the background was actually the workers who have been working on making this mission happen for months and finally got to see their hard work pay off.

    Incidentally, this was also the first high-profile launch since the vaccines started becoming more readily available, which means this was the first time they've been able to come by the control center and cheer for a launch in a very long time. Cheering for launches was the norm for a long time for them before COVID.

    (Fun fact: The SpaceX control center is located in a corner on the factory floor where they build all the rockets and capsules)

    I know, they simply could have led the coverage from different place. The overlaps became annoying, especially together with checkmarks from flight control, leading to basically constant interruptions.

    They do provide a Mission Control Audio-only stream for almost all their flights if you're not interested in all the other stuff. No idea why they don't have any actual footage in this one. They usually show the same footage as the main stream, just without the hosts.

    Yea it was just too many people all trying to talk at once.
    Between them pausing for cheers and interrupting each other it was kind of a mess.

    Did anyone watch the crypto stream with Elon last nite?
    Was on youtube for me but then I couldn't find anything about it on Spacex site.

    A bit louder than usual, but that's also kinda the charm of it. You can hear the excitement of the SpaceX folks in the background, cheering at every successful stage no matter how many times they've successfully launched and landed rockets nowadays.

    Live in-flight update with the crew at 5pm Eastern/2pm Pacific/2300 CEST:

    True, and honestly I'd love to work for them.
    Or Tesla.
    Seems like a fun team to part of.

    Short event due to capsule only being in downlink range for a short time, but...

    I am so fucking jelly.

    Splashdown around 406pm Pacific/706pm Eastern/0106 CEST. Coverage expected to start an hour before that.

    Splashdown! Recovery crews on the way out to the capsule now.

    Crew has been extracted from the capsule and pretty much danced their way out. Mission successful!

    I have to admit Nerraw the cupola was pretty cool too.
    The fact it's interchangeable with the docking node or whatever it was is neat.
    And yea lol they were pretty happy.
    They qualify as actual astronauts for the wings I think.

    No matter the topic, someone will find a way to redirect it to complain about their current aggro.

    Did you see the moon mission is getting held up because not-yet-an-astronaut Bezo's adorable Blue Origin, while it's also planning on sending Shatner up to 11-minutes-in-sub-orbital-space, is contending the decision of NASA to use brought-ISS-access-back-to-the-U.S. Musk's Space Company's award of the moon lander?

    Fucking tourists man....
