My wife found me sitting in front of the fireplace reading new posts on the forums last night and asked me what was new on ‘Spacebook’. I just smiled and told way her it was way more interesting than whatever was happening on the Book of Faces.

I'm ready for another launch, it's been too long :)

Turn the lights on!
When I say "Jump!", you say "To which orbital inclination?"

I thought that prayers for success on this flight might best be aided with a Korean influence. Y'all know how difficult it is to find a Korean holy man in rural Tennessee? Brother Park here is all over the idea. We're covered. :)

Would he pray the payload makes it to a “brother park”-ing orbit?

Is it a prayer to make sure it makes it to orbit and not the afterlife?

Sorry but translation is a risk we take. I'm told that I barely speak English myself.  ???

Just in case anyone is confused about how to launch ...

... but where's the advice about how to land again?

That was simply the long-term state of the industry after the premature death of Saturn, and it's clear that that concept pervaded the impacted community out of necessity.

I knew we plunged Cassini into Saturn, but I didn't realize that we'd killed it.
First Pluto, now Saturn, maybe Elon needs to think bigger than Mars, at this rate it may not be far enough.

The only things not being reused on CRS-13 is the US and Trunk.
Doesn’t the trunk get re-used for trash disposal. :)

Bus just drove past!

That'll be the crew getting on board.

Oops, no-one's supposed to know about the Korean space station.

Congratulations to all involved for a successful launch, landing and deployment.

I had to laugh when the presenter said "ready for another launch" about the first stage...

Oh, that'll buff right out!

I guess they subbed out octograbber for ref bot and his fire extinguisher for this robot war landing.

Nice of Elon for providing "fireworks" and a "weenie roast" aboard OCISY to honor Lewis Hamilton's 4th F1 World Driving Championship... ;D
