Congrats to SpaceX on making history while making it look routine. Amazing work by all involved.

Congrats to SES on getting their sat to orbit and being willing to take a chance on something no one else has done before for a orbital class rocket.

Time for a drink to celebrate!

Congratulations to SpaceX for keeping going towards the dream and proving all the naysayers wrong! This was a historic launch and 30.03.2017 will be remembered and written down in history books.
