His engines are ready, clamps weak, fuel is heavy
There's icing on his panels already, Elon's spaghetti
He's nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready to lift off,
But he keeps on forgetting when he'll touch down,
The launch pad goes so loud
He opens his valves, but the thrust won't come out
He's choking how, everybody's joking now
The clock's run up, time's up, over, bloah!
Snap back to reality, Oh there pulls gravity
Oh, there goes Falcon, he choked
He's so fast, but won't orbit that
Easy, no
He won't lift it, he knows his whole back's
to these loads
It don't matter, he's nope
He knows that but he's broke
He's so defective, he knows
When he goes back to his mobile pad
that's when it's
Back to the VAB again

Also, for anyone getting worried here, when Falcon 9 launch countdowns have tons of fuck ups and last minute problems the launch team is trying to work through, there is actually LESS chance of a catastrophic failure. It's the countdowns that proceed flawlessly and without any issues that you have to watch out for. CRS-7 is a great example of that.

What are you talking about?

Musk was born June 28, 1971, in Pretoria, Transvaal, South Africa,[22] the son of Maye (née Haldeman), a model from Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada;[23] and Errol Musk, a South African-born electromechanical engineer. He has a younger brother, Kimbal (born 1972), and a younger sister, Tosca (born 1974).[23][24][25][26] His paternal grandmother was British, and he also has Pennsylvania Dutch ancestry.[27][28] After his parents divorced in 1980, Musk lived mostly with his father in locations in South Africa.[27]

Sorry America, he is our's and Netherland's.

Engines are incredibly simple and also incredibly reliable. There hasn't been a single catastrophic engine failure in any Falcon 9 launch yet, although CRS-1 did experience a premature engine shutdown (which was compensated for by the other eight engines). That being said, the Merlin Vacuum has always been a source of issues in the past, especially since the Merlin Vacuum is more complex than any of the first stage engines.

99.8% sure this one was a failure too. The seas where very rough, 15 ft waves the whole drone ship was rocking like mad. The video cut out just as lighting form the rocket started showing up on the pad, the announcers seemed disappointed and the crowed at spacex stopped cheering.

There's a lot of RF noise emitted from the rocket engines. If they're going for publicity, they should stream LOS to a ship about 10NM away (based on antenna height) which could then stream video to their contracted satellite without a fucking rocket getting in the way.

Second stage has reached the parking orbit and the payload is good, so the primary mission is going great. At this point any issues with the second stage can potentially be fixed if they arise (unlike during any other point of the launch for obvious reasons), so I think we can breathe easy. No idea if first stage landed successfully or not, I doubt it. I know they lost satellite signal and don't know for certain yet, but holy shit did you see how much the barge was rocking in the waves? The rocket could have landed and then tipped over, who knows, but either way not a big deal. This core was from a previous rocket generation and was just going in trash anyway, and they already aced the return to land first stage recovery on the last flight, which will be used for the majority of the missions SpaceX flies.

Where is that in the constitution. Yes, motherfucker, NASA isn't in the constitution, so it's a socialist illegal unconstitutional agency.

If SpaceX is so great, why do they need the government to fund them and be 85% of their revenue source?

I say, defund NASA, lower taxes. If the private industry ever makes space commercially viable, great. Until then, fucking don't waste 200 billion on a few tin cans in orbit. And don't pay for Mr. Musk's mansions and golf club membership WITH TAX MONEY.

They want to make a permanent colony on mars. At least a million before musk dies.

He doesn't say this publicly, but EVERYTHING is to get to mars.

The reusability, the cost drops, EVERYTHING is to get to mars.

He's spent his entire life on it at this point, and it seems he'll spend the rest of his life on it too.

He is practically our only chance at this point.

Why don't they let them just land on land like last time? The answer: because last time was a failure and closer to a disaster than will ever be publicly acknowledged wake up sheeple

Because the boost back landing requires more delta-v, which means less delta-v for putting the payload into orbit.

you faggots do know this isn't the same version of the Falcon 9 that launches last time.

this is the Falcon 9 1.1 this was the last launch of this version and all other version will be Falcon 9 1.1 Full Thrust and Falcon 9 Heavy

Did it fall over? Did it go boom?

>>61268440
One of the leg touched the ground too early and broke because it is not designed to carry the full load of the rocket on its own.
The waves are kinda high today, the drone ship was shaky and the rocket couldn't even it out in time.
It was on target, it landed on the ship but the leg broke and the rocket probably fall into the ocean.

He posted the picture, because he wanted to show you can see only so much on the horizon, if the earth was flat you'd be able to see the next mountain.
>>
>>61268637
If the booster was angled the whole force would be on one leg, its nothing weird about it breaking.

Next time, more legs.
>>
>>61268655
I thought the whole point of forcing a neat landing was so they could reuse their ship parts.

Why then use a different one?

Can confirm. Hull down is a term used by sailors to denote when only a ship's bridge or mast is visible above the horizon. I have seen it and been able to successfully predict when a ship on AIS or radar would appear over the horizon by using the distance to the horizon formula. Flat earthers are full of shit and any practical interaction with the real world will make this obvious.

>>61268078
Lol a landing leg broke during the CRS-6 attempt too, so it's not the first time that's happened. Although in CRS-6 the rocket came in with way too much horizontal velocity and tipped over, where here it sounds like they were completely on target but failed to completely cancel out vertical velocity and one of the legs snapped. So rocket landed a little hard and tipped over after too much stress was placed on a leg and it snapped, from the sound of it. I'm wondering if it was related to ocean conditions, I mean did anyone notice how much the barge was rocking in the stream? Even a small difference in height between one end of the barge and the other could cause a landing failure, considering how the Falcon 9 first stage actually conducts a landing. Since the Merlin 1D engine is actually too powerful for the near-empty first stage tank to hover with, it has to perform what is called a "suicide burn". If any of you have ever played Kerbal Space Program, you are probably familiar with this term or even tried the procedure yourself (most likely by cheating with MechJeb, you fucking pussy). Basically you fire your engines a few kilometers above ground, and in the course of fifteen seconds take a seventeen story tall cylinder of metal travelling at supersonic speeds to zero the EXACT MOMENT it touches the ground. There's literally no margin for error here, if you use too much thrust and hit zero before ground contact, the rocket goes back up and you crash when you run out of gas moments later. Not enough thrust, and the drone ship gets a cool new scorch mark and JRTI's bloodlust is satisfied for a little while longer. Looks like the second situation occurred here, although it was still closer than the other barge attempts. Oh well, at least SpaceX has return to land launches pretty much figured out now.

>>61268932
We human beans really need to work on thrusters that don't extinguish beneath, say, 70% thrust. That would introduce margin for error in landings.
>>
>>61268932
So this whole experiment relies on near 0% chance of success every time.

Tell me again why are we going to let these nutjobs take us to Mars on a gamble?
>>
>>61269099
fuck off with your divide and conquer tactics.

>>61269178

Because the mission to Mars will be privately funded. If I want to trust Must with my money and life, it is my right to do so. In Trump and Elon we trust. The light of the human race will never extinguish under their leadership.
>>
>>61268932
It's not really a suicide burn since they lower their velocity way before landing.
>>
so they really had no ship, no plane there to show us footage of the landing if the cameras on the drone ship failed, like they did?
>>
>>61269390
yes

they are sending up NSA satellites now, so public cant know anything that really happens
