Order now and get a piece of the booster for your boardroom ABSOLUTELY FREE!*

*offer not valid for new boosters. Void where prohibited. You must be at least this tall to ride Falcon 9. Check local listings for launch times.

** We also offer free delivery. But we REALLY think you should pay for delivery, as we can't be responsible for what happens if we just land on top of your boardroom....
The Chinese have already achieved this.   We must not have a rocket part delivery gap!

If we had not ignored the mine shaft gap, this would not be a problem.
If you're happy and you know it,
It's your med's!

 Ah well if we're going that retro I'll go 180 in the other direction, this was the song I thought of when Falcon first pulled off a barge landing

Hehe, okay, I just *have* to... it's a party thread, so sometimes posts come out of right field, right?  I can't help but think this might've been humming along in the mind of the ASDS at some point in the not too distant past.

Ah today is the first time I can watch the launch using the native Youtube app on my new 65" LG 4K TV. Too bad SpaceX isn't streaming the launch in 4K...

I'm gonna cast it to my 4k Vizio as well. One day we will have 4k! One day Direct/Att will also decide to give me NASA channel in HD as well.  >:(
