A flight proven SpaceX Falcon 9 will deliver BulgariaSat-1 to a Geostationary Transfer Orbit (GTO).
"flight proven" still makes me LOL. With glee.

How does that even work? You can't email pieces of paper, it just doesn't work that way.

(they probably mean email them scans)

You and Lar sure know how to party... ;)

But seriously (???!), I have to pinch myself to check if I'm dreaming every time I hear 'flight-proven'

Hadn't you heard?  New company called TeleporteX will zap physical objects straight to Hawthorne.   The terminals are hidden in the new tunnels.  Shhh!

I literally saw that months ago on the inner dark under web. Turns out they create micro wormholes through flat plane of the earth and suck you through to the other side. The Boring Company is just a cover for it and SpaceX was just an attempt to create the tunnels through the firmament. True story dudes.

Well in response to the long discussion about various numbers of stages my young padawan rocket engineer decided to build a 4 stage rocket with a modular service unit. However something in his math was off as he had a RUD during MaxQ or well when someone rocked the table ;)

Well in the true spirit of SpaceX when rebuilding he didn't go for the safe path and made now a 5 stage rocket...

Get the LEGO Saturn V and then mod it into what you want...

Finally, conclusive proof that sometimes rockets are LEGO elements.

But that thing is only good for one launch... SpaceX is all about re-usability.

While it was only used once, was there something stating it could only be used once? I don't recall such a limitation being stated. Could easily have missed it though. I did always wonder why they just didn't send another person, but that wouldn't have made for the same drama and mystery.

In the book it is made very clear that after the first use it stopped working by design. That way the five occupants (another fault of the movie) are the ones with with the message.  They just need everyone to accept what they say is true.
