Perhaps it is just an anomaly, but MarineTraffic.com shows that Go Navigator headed back out and is now sailing away from Pensacola, Florida. Probably not the case, although Stennis or Michoud could be a possibility if so.

The post flight processing facility for Dragon capsules is at area 59 at Canaveral.

Yes, it is. Go Navigator was heading west for a brief period, hence the Stennis or Michoud thinking. It now appears to have turned back toward Pensacola. Or as I said before, perhaps this is all was just anomalies in the tracking.

Elon is so fired up and eloquent. "And I do think what this heralds really, is fundamentally, a new era in spaceflight a new era in space exploration. We're gonna go to the moon, we're gonna have a base on the moon, we're gonna send people to Mars, and make life multi-planetary. I think this day heralds a new age of space exploration."

What a day! Thanks to everyone who contributed coverage, not least Ronsmytheiii for his Shuttle-era (fitting) level of coverage and followed the mission with us.

History!
