Looks like SpaceX is going all in on X. YouTube streams for Crew 6 splashdown and Starlink 6-12 webcasts have been removed and will now be streamed on X. Also links to all social media networks deleted from the SpaceX website menu.
NASA related and possibly other government missions likely will remain on YouTube. But I guess Elon must want fewer eyes on other SpaceX activities since a lot of people have easy access to YT and don't have X/Twitter accounts. His business, so he can do whatever he wants. Not a great plan in my opinion, but little of what he has done with X/Twitter since he took over has made much sense to me. I'll be curious to see how NSF handles this, since the NSF coverage usually has a mix of NSF and SpaceX coverage.
I assume that this means that to see the SpaceX coverage a person has to have a Twitter account and sign into it.What is the NSF link for launch coverage?

Removed some rather unfortunate comments (and sorry for the one that quoted one, as that post was fine - but I need to keep the threads clean). Let's not get silly.Needless to say NSF will continue to livestream on YT. X is not a viable proposition for livestreaming for us at this time.This move from SpaceX (understandable by the way per Elon owning both) does not impact NSF as we provide original launch and livestream coverage via our people and cameras in the field.As far as Crew-6's return, NASA will be livestreaming on YT.
<snip>I would not consider this to be anywhere near this big of a deal if X was actually usable without logging in.
Donít know what this means for Mission Control audio
