Please, puleeeeeze get the Model X on the market ….This is getting paaiiiinfullllllll…

Hot Damn!

Aww. I thought, maybe for a second time, us lot at this site would’ve beat Where’s Elon? community to it. That would’ve been something!

Cool, hope they launch the Model-X soon.

Even had a little Slim Pickens Doctor Strangelove take off in it.

I noticed the called Mars One a scam. Anyone have any opinion on that?

It’s a scam.

Whether genuine attempt or genuine scam…

Its quite impossible thing to accomplish for anybody*

The way they are doing their pre-scanning for crew?

As if they did not meant to send those people into space.

But genuine scam must mean moneys for somebody. Hard to see that either.

Seams to be genuine fa**-up ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

Falcon 9 will eventually make history….try try again to land on that drone barge.
Space X needs an equal chance against the lobbyist-laden Boeing, Rockwell, Lockheed and others. Hopefully Musk will win that right to compete on a level playing field with the big boys. It is shameful NASA has no way to ISS but to pay Putin whatever he asks to get up there.

If Tesla can turn an entire industry toward an electric future against all odds – and they are legion, I have no doubt he can reach Mars.

No, my friend, James, Elon Musks’ Space X is currently supplying the International Space Station on a regular basis.

“Making History

SpaceX has gained worldwide attention for a series of historic milestones.

It is the only private company ever to return a spacecraft from low-Earth orbit, which it first accomplished in December 2010.

The company made history again in May 2012 when its Dragon spacecraft attached to the International Space Station, exchanged cargo payloads, and returned safely to Earth โ€” a technically challenging feat previously accomplished only by governments.

Since then Dragon has delivered cargo to and from the space station multiple times, providing regular cargo resupply missions for NASA.”

I would just like to point out that the attempted 1st Stage Falcon Rocket Booster recovery is proof concept.

By reusing rather then dumping at sea, the spent 1st stage booster, great monies can be saved in reuse of the onboard, now recovered rocket engines.

Proof of Concept- This is Stunning Footage!

Of course now try to hit this target, a drone ship, (barge) in rolling seas, no less!

My friend Thomas, I am wondering why you say “no”…

I was not attempting to list the entire history of Space-X’s missions, only saying I believed they would be successful in accomplishing the goals of the last 3 missions – which is to land the rocket booster on the drone barge. I know the history of Space-X.

What I was talking about: Space-X’s lawsuit against it’s own customer: U.S. gov. – re: the fair right to bid against Boeing and Lockheed for Air Force and NASA rocket ( satellite )contracts. Look it up.

Is there a way I can un-watch that? The Volt-dancers look better every day.

lol +1 kdawg. I remember seeing this “Like a Rolling Stone” radio, that had the song playing on every channel.
I always thought it would be a cool internet commercial for some EV manufacturer to have their EV cruising to classic drive tunes on different channels. Goin Mobile, Trampled under foot, Pink Cadillac….

They need some sort of capture/stabilization system for the booster when it lands on the platform. Maybe like electromagnetic clamps or something like that.

I like that they predicted he will die on mars… at the Age of 217 ๐Ÿ™‚
