    It would be nice if they launched the damn thing for once just to get rid of this deja-vu feeling we're all having.:confused:

    That was the most epic launch production I've seen in my lifetime. The cockpit views, the return ship landing, the outside views.

    Let's do more of this. +1 for science.

    I would sit in there for free. But they would not let me as an free passenger.
    I am sure, I would have smile all over my face and maybe scream in excitement before getting back my usual composure.

    Those people are really cool.

    It was all on live; and in real time from the ground up to orbit; space. Watching the rockets detach, land automatically for re-use. The capsule go to the ISS. Man - what a ... I'm loss for words, I was lucky to watch it all

    I am still watching live stream. Even while it is now political part. It has some interesting insights if one cares to read between the lines.

    That was totally worth my time, it looked super light on the launch pad, when it took off into space.

    The space station docking is happening right now. I feel like I'm 8 years old again.

    No it was incredible when they did it 60 years ago with a tiny fraction of the tech and computing power, with an agency that had been in existence for 11 years vs Space X's 18 and they did it almost totally from scratch rather than having 6 decades of collective rocket science to build on.

    Still it's nice for America that it no longer needs Russia to perform what is essentially a glorified Delivery and Taxi service to the ISS any more though.
