Well .. congratulations to Elon Musk and SpaceX, just watched the launch of Falcon Heavy.....  appeared to be faultless, was also quite amazing !! The simultaneous landing of the 2 side cores was stunning !!

Just hope the rest of the mission .. centre core recovery and orbit insertion also go as planned

He might be a dreamer .. but it appears some of his dreams do come true !!

One hell of an achievement just landing the boosters in sync. Shame about the centre core though. Great watch and thanks for the link. :y 8)

At least they have a sense of humour too, with the caption "don`t panic" on the satnav screen in the Tesla  :D

Fantastic achievement, by man with a vision for 21st century transport. :y :y :y

While the best our politicians can manage for 21st century progress is an overpriced, high maintenance white elephant using Victorian technology, HS2. >:( >:( >:(

Although not quite according to script with the centre section crashing into the water as opposed to landing back as planned it was still a great achievement :y The two side boosters landing in synch was amazing to see.Couple of nice touches with the sat nav display,Major Tom on the stereo and a copy of Hitchikers Guide in the glove box 8) Bodes well for the future and good luck to the man for his vision and determination to see it through :y :y

If he does, it will probably be a one-way trip.

The irony of running the car batteries down playing music on the radio in an environment where sound doesn't travel is not lost on me ;D
