I stand by the suggestion that the party thread should be named.

The "Launch, Land and Relaunch Party Thread" in honor of this historic flight and the subsequent flights.
I'm contractually obligated to note that while I threw my like in with the suggestion, I am terribly put out that it's lacking its Oxford comma.  :P

I do hope it's an upgraded (block 5?) thread, and thus designed for easy, economical reuse. Otherwise, even if successful, the thread might end up as a lawn ornament outside NSF HQ.

I'm still pushing for them to launch a Tesla Model S so that they can claim it can get more than 1,000,000 miles on a single charge.
