From a fully fueled abort to a successful launch and landing in one afternoon...wow! I had given up after the abort and, surprise, surprise,



Not a perfect landing, but it sure was better than the last two.

I should get up at 3 am to watch the Starlink launch...nahhh

I read a great article about a year ago saying that when Obama nixed NASA, they lost a lot of good engineers and scientist ... and that Space X could have had YEARS of a head start if they could merge these guys but a lot of them retired.... and people trust self driving cars... UMM NO program is a mess... they need to fire people
