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
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

THE FUCKING CAPTCHAS ARE PISSING ME OFF NOW, TEN FUCKING TIMES I HAD TO SELECT ALL IMAGES WITH STREET NAMES, WHAT THE FUCK
Is it just me or is the audo out of synch? Embarrassing.
Oh well, Orbcomm was the big launch that everyone watched, and that went flawlessly. Still think the first stage won't get to land, drone ships are generally more difficult than the land return they did last time.
Better quality here.
Kind of hope it blows up because I like explosions.
Unfortunately the barge landings are necessary for Falcon Heavy flights since the core is going way too fast to return to the launch site like SpaceX wants to do for most launches.
>Kind of hope it blows up because I like explosions.
The whole blowing up thing was when they were using a previous design using inferior Russian engines. Should work much more reliably.
don't jinx this lauch you fucker. if you want a rocket explode then watch this.
Sure he is and I consider myself a killer whale.
So you move to China and you are suddenly Chinese? kek
Americans incapable of producing their own entrepreneurs they have to steal other country's.
Ha what was up with Ground and Flight software there? They fucking fall asleep at their consoles?
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.
Calling it now, engine failure.
So if he was ethnically Japanese you wouldn't call him American?
White Americans are ethnically European, native Americans are the only ethnic Americans.
I don't blame him but to call him American is silly, he is listed as Canadian-American anyway.
I could not agree with you more, we need more diversity!!
>Still trying to force a conflation.
Not taking the bait. I know you fucked up. You know you fucked up. Everyone reading this posts know you fucked up. Stop before you make yourself look even more retarded.
What are you talking about?
Musk was born June 28, 1971, in Pretoria, Transvaal, South Africa, the son of Maye (née Haldeman), a model from Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada; and Errol Musk, a South African-born electromechanical engineer. He has a younger brother, Kimbal (born 1972), and a younger sister, Tosca (born 1974). His paternal grandmother was British, and he also has Pennsylvania Dutch ancestry. After his parents divorced in 1980, Musk lived mostly with his father in locations in South Africa.
Sorry America, he is our's and Netherland's.
Almost lift-off HYPE!
So how long until the landing after lift-off?
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.
I hope it crashes and burns and kills them all. I hate Elon Musk. The guy is an asshole.
And SpaceX is nothing but a government sponsored socialist "talk big, don't deliver" company. Haven't they said since 2007 they are gonna have people fly into space???
>Yfw it is actually a nuke and is headed straight for Iran
President Donald Trump please take 2 billion of funding from NASA and give it to SpaceX.
>Spacex paid off the government loan dude.
It is not about "loans". It is about customers. 85% of their revenues are from the taxpayer. They are a shit socialist company.
>Elon Must is making america great again.
He is just an asshole. Deal with it. A cheating, wife divorcing, grandstanding asshole.
>Him and Trump are going to start an intergalactic empire.
Don't even name Trump in the same sentence as the asshole that is Musk. Trump is great. Trump is an American. Trump will make America great again.
Elon Musk is gonna just shit all over America again, taking more billions in taxmoney, sending toilet paper and tomatoes to the homosexual space station that is only kept in orbit because of the Russians.
>President Donald Trump please take 2 billion of funding from NASA and give it to SpaceX.
President Trump will kill off this socialist shithole that is NASA and SpaceX. No more freeloading and money grabbing from these socialist shits.
America, the land of freedom where a White African can change the world. Beautiful.
>3 minutes or so before kaboom
Getting excited here
Guys, why does the earth like its bending inwards? It looked flat for a while, no curvature.
Germany. Stop hating. Don't you have some kebab multiculturalism to get back to while America is busy winning?
I tried to watch this stream to get rid of my doubts on the flat earth, if anything I am more speculative than before
>I think u are refering to Richard Branson's endevour
No, I am talking about the socialist SpaceX shithole taxmoney grabbing overpromising idiots. I hope Trump defunds NASA and the ISS and SpaceX burns and goes bankrupt.
>Don't you have some kebab multiculturalism to get back to while America is busy winning?
Guess who is the reason those sand people are coming to Germany.
Also, we are busy to cheating on the cars we are selling to you. You found one of the 17 devices we use to kill you with exhausts... 16 to go.
This is the reason why the comments are disabled... they don't want flat earthers dominating the comment section and introducing it to normies
>I can tell you are the socialist. It's always the lefty cucks who cut or try to kill our space funding.
>taxpayer funded agency
>taxpayer funded ISS, completely over budget and 200 billions in costs
>taxpayer funded SpaceX missions
yeah, sure, whatever rocks your boat.
What kind of lense bends a straight line above the center downwards? This is obviously fake its impossible to see the curvature unelevated.
Do i have time to fap to lolis before they get back?!?!
please someone answer
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.
The image was originally bent to appear as the Round Earth model would, and their computer models of Earth showed extreme curvature, as soon as it started looking funny they cut it off.
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.
Some things are the proper role for government. Exploring the frontier and sponsoring the building of infrastructure to expand into it have always been key roles for our government.
Nothing to see there. Just our Space Interceptor Program in action.
Shouldn't they have the confirmation by now? What the fuck is happening? Are we really gonna have to wait half an hour to get the info/video? Get your shit together, SpaceX.
you got to remember you are dealing with autistic manchildren who's music folder is only video game and anime music.
>What kind of lense bends a straight line above the center downwards? This is obviously fake its impossible to see the curvature unelevated.
Lots and lots of wide angle lenses do shit like that you retard.
Thanks for ending the circlejeck happenings. Just enough time to clean up the house a bit.
>WHAT'S A ROCKET BURN
nigger unless you saw and took a picture of the rocket, i don't believe you
>thinking i'm going to go back and read all of your retardation
have you considered fucking yourself
maybe they're trying to impress our ayylmao overlords
was this part of their plan
satellite uplink was lost, they can't do shit.
>canceling a rocket launch
the main objective was to get the payload into orbit. if the first stage got destroyed on landing that's not a problem
>Some things are the proper role for government. Exploring the frontier and sponsoring the building of infrastructure to expand into it have always been key roles for our government.
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.
The Babylons believed in the round earth and they made the mathematical formula to predict eclipses that is used by NASA today (Saros Cycle), nothing seemed off to them about them.
Who cares, it's fucking trash.
>posts picture of death grips
>calls people autistic man children
lmaooooooooooooo what on earth m8
Welp, guess that's setteled then. They just posted this on their twitter. Great fucking job.
*flat earth sorry
Also Pic shows example of fact that there are no non-composite photos from earth from space so
Well, you hooked me. Anyway, just hop on any ferry, grab some binoculars and look at a ship some 10-15 NMs away on a clear day, this is what you get.
The body of the ship will be below the curvature of the horizon.
If you had your way we would still be 13 states. No, scratch that, we wouldn't be here. Hell, for that matter Germany wouldn't either because the Germanic peoples would never have migrated west into Europe.
Yeah, the music is pretty chill. I want to listen to that shit while I am put into hibernation on Elon's exodus to Mars. I am saving all of my shekels for when the day comes. Escape from this place once and for all. I'll be close to 50 by then.
People who complain about wasting money on space are fucking retarded when trillions more tax dollars have been wasted on other shit.
I just went and checked, of course fake.
But I noticed something looking at their header pic.
Is this their goal?
To terraform mars?
On a Round Earth, a plane would have to slightly point down at all times to account for the curvature of the earth, this does not happen though.
If a plane did not have this downward angle they would gain altitude until the air was no longer dense enough to support its weight
I see you're new to 4chan, please use this guide to get you started.
Rule 33 applies directly to you
>he doesn't know how to use meme arrows
>Landing leg broke.
>Still on barge.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN?!
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.
>You're a brit so your taste are beyond shit; that's a given bud.
Yeah, sure it is mate... how come the majority of noteworthy musicians are from here then?
Enjoy nicki minaj and fiddy cent do you mate?
>implying i'm a newfag you raging faggot
Why is it always the redditors that say ''back to reddit''
FUCK IT WE DID IT BOYS
SpaceX BTFO out of the ESA so bad that they had to make a new Ariane rocket called Ariane 6 and even that rocket can't compete with the Falcon 9.
It means the Olympic gold medalist completed her routine with a broken and fractured leg yet took no points off the over all performance because she didn't flinch or wince in pain once.
>He doesn't say this publicly
>SpaceX designs, manufactures and launches advanced rockets and spacecraft. The company was founded in 2002 to revolutionize space technology, with the ultimate goal of enabling people to live on other planets.
Most of the Earth's surface is water, landing at sea is much more important. They've already proven they can land on land why would they do it again when they can find out if they can land at sea?
>shitty governmental organization BTFO by private competitor
There are a lot of stupid people out there mate.
Some guy once said to me that he thinks going to space is a waste of time and we shouldn't bother because the money could be sent to africa.
Some people just don't get it
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
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.
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.
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.
I'm beginning to think they know the barge landings will fail, but do it anyway in order to get tax write-offs.
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.
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?
