But that thing is only good for one launch... SpaceX is all about re-usability.

Small steps Elon,..... small steps.

Elon:  To heck with that!

So Lar is looking for a thread to put all the Upper Stage post launch partying... Think we should invite the upper stages to the party?

SES-8 Upper Stage Norad ID: 39461
Thaicom 6 Upper Stage Norad ID: 39501
AsiaSat 8  Upper Stage Norad ID: 40108
AsiaSat 6 Upper Stage Norad ID: 40142
ABS-3A , Satmex 7  Upper Stage Norad ID: 40426
MonacoSAT  Upper Stage Norad ID: 40618
SES-9 Upper Stage Norad ID: 41381
JCSAT-14 Upper Stage Norad ID: 41472
Thaicom 8 Upper Stage Norad ID: 41553
ABS 2, EUTELSAT 117W B Upper Stage Norad ID: 41590
JCSAT-16 Upper Stage Norad ID: 41730
Echostar 23 Upper Stage Norad ID: 42071
SES-10 Upper Stage Norad ID: 42433
Inmarsat-5 F4 Upper Stage Norad ID: 42699

Someone is keeping track of them, they have a record, and are the life of the party after all.

So that's why Elon wanted to put a greenhouse on Mars...

That said I'm not sure whether to be more impressed by the improvement in SpaceX's rockets, or the improvement on their parties. I mean here is where they started on parties:

Oh, that's gotta be a poll.
 When will we have the first bona fide party on Mars? (To be bona fide, it must include alcohol and sex.)

And surely a mariachi band? :) (of course SpaceX's mariachi band, outsourcing that is not going to happen) ;)

Not on my watch...

(IBM used to have (according to the Jargon Dictionary which is NEVER wrong) an LSD rule...[1]

Where'd you get a PUG [Payload User Guide]?
I requested one and they sent it.

This guy's too clever by half! Watch him...

Speaking of which, one of the big SpaceX mysteries is the earlier booster numbers (B100xx). We only have them for the more recent launches, but it would be great to have them for all launches (plus non-flight boosters such as Grasshopper, F9R and engineering test objects). Has anybody actually asked SpaceX for a list of booster numbers with associated uses?

To maintain the purity of the NROL launch update thread I'm copying this here to respond:

Tweet from Jonathan McDowell
Quote
Congrats to Leo Barhorst for locating the secret NRO sat launched by SpaceX on May 1 in a 400 km, 50 deg orbit (http://satobs.org )

It would be great if someone from the NRO replied and said "We'd congratulate you too, but that would mean us implying you know where our satellite is and then we'd have to kill you"
For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for Nature cannot be fooled. -- Richard Feynman

Watch out for pilot Vertigo at high Elevation.  Might instead be worth directing funding towards How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb...

Launch land and relaunch party thread ...
Are we going to party about the
reuse of a dragon capsule for this next flight?
The capsule has a previous mission tattoo!
Colonize Mars!
