Didn't stick the landing.
Rocket Number 9 exploded?
didn't stick the landing. successful flight up to that point. They're still figuring out how to land it. SN10 is standing by, thunderbirds are go.
Missed the landing, didn't fry a bunch of birds on camera.
It's $100 to pre-register for the service, ~$400 for the equipment, and ~$100/mo for the service. More than what I'm paying now, but I'm still considering it.
We got a successful landing AND an explosion. What a day.
That’s a pic of this morning’s launch by SpaceX in Florida. The picture was taken by a TV reporter near his house in Roanoke, VA.
People from NC weren't sure what to think.
oops. SN11 blows up at 2:19:00 when they fired the rockets to slow descent. Start watching at 2:14:00 for the most fun. "It went boom. Debris is everywhere. Likely on our cameras."
At least the crater is in the right place!

Elon Musk’s SpaceX wins contract to develop spacecraft to land astronauts on the moon
NASA on Friday selected Elon Musk’s SpaceX to build spacecraft that would land astronauts on the moon for the first time since the last Apollo mission, according to a source selection document obtained by The Washington Post.
The contract for the “human landing system” marks another major victory for the hard-charging company that vaults it to the top tier of the nation’s aerospace companies and solidifies it as one of the space agency’s most trusted partners.
In winning the $2.9 billion contract, SpaceX beat out Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin.
For the Artemis program, SpaceX bid its reusable Starship spacecraft, which is being designed to fly large numbers of people into deep space and land on celestial bodies as well as back on Earth.
