SpaceX Splashdown


First splashdown in 45 years.

Great to see the space program picking up some speed.

I've been watching a lot of stuff on preparations to land on Mars.

Pretty fascinating stuff.

Re: SpaceX Splashdown


During my life I was able to see the astronauts with the Apollo program, I was able to watch the launch of the space shuttle from Florida first time, so it was the perfect trifecta To watch a private company launch our astronauts into space, using an iPad....lol

More props for that "crazy" Elon Musk, as well. Gotta hand it to the guy for pushing the envelope(s) with entrepreneurial spirit.
