Spacecraft SEPARATION.  MISSION COMPLETE for Falcon 9!

Online Chris Bergin

Remember, at S/C - historically we allow one post of congrats from each member (but questions, replies, discussion and second posts to go into the other threads. It's because people love to look back and see their name on a historic event thread).

S/C Sep!!!!

Congrats to all involved. Amazing!

William's superb article, updated:

Thanks to Chris G at KSC, William here - and all for the coverage!
