Amazing, simply amazing. Elon and SpaceX may be widely optimistic on dates at times, but they always deliver in the end.

Many, many congratulations. So pleased it landed successfully again too, the data from re-examining the booster will be invaluable.

Much kudos to SES for taking the calculated risk and wanting to push the industry forward. Thank you!

Absolutely amazing, fantastic work by everyone involved in today's launch.  SpaceX made a big deal about this on stream, and I'm inclined to agree with them - this really does feel like quite the amazing leap.

If nothing else, this alone is a milestone in launch vehicle economics.  Even if SpaceX never makes refurbishment any faster than the 4 months they needed for this one, they're still better off than they were - that said, I think we've got a lot of improvement to anticipate.

To summarize my thoughts...
All aboard the HSF hype train!  Choo Choo!

Congratulations SpaceX!

Wow! I'm getting that 'finally things are moving forward' vibe (no offence to the accomplishments of Mr. Bezos and his team!). Shame it's only taken 25 years to feel it again  :'(

Onward and upward!

This one deserves congratulations.  History has been made again!  Well done SpaceX, we're one step closer.

I loved Musk's statement at the end.  "A huge revolution in spaceflight, It's been 15 years, a long time, lot of difficult steps along the way, incredibly proud of the SpaceX team, a milestone.  Proving that something can be done that many people said was impossible"

Amen to that.
