Everyone's commenting that SpaceX has been slow getting the pictures of Monday's lunch out. I mean, geez, what's wrong with just using stock pictures?

Okay... so relaunches are now a thing which makes me want to hold off on my partying until we see the following:

a Rerelaunch. :)

That's as bad as those old Grade "C" Sci-fi flicks that would use footage of two completely different rockets for the same fictional rocket ship!

Looks pretty clean for a used rocket.
Only used by a little old lady from Pasadena???

This time next year, relaunches will be unremarkable.  Any excitement and tension will be around a new booster's 'maiden launch'   :D

The shrinking RSS is like a flattering pair of pants for Falcon 9. Yes, it does make you look bigger.

Background noise is the SpaceXers eating. The cafeteria is called "The Lunch Pad" according to an employee on Twitter. Not sure if the name changes for dinner though.  ;)

Looks like the glowing grid fin action occurred right at sunset, judging by the footage from stage 2. Made everything redder and more dramatic.

Since Apollo 7 was 49 years ago, I took some photos of my models of both rockets.  They are 1/144 scale.
