Ever since I can remember I’ve been enamoured of space. The older I get, and the more I learn, the less likely it is I will ever travel to the great beyond.
With that said, I am perpetually excited by the prospect of regular space travel becoming a common occurrence beyond the highly trained (and impossible to become) astronauts.
The most devastating, and exciting part of launching giant pieces of metal into space – is the explosions. Elon Musk and Space X continue to push private enterprize space travel and exploration to new heights – and it’s amazing.
The latest mission sent 5500 pounds of supplies and experiments into orbit on Sunday – the payload should reach the International Space Station by mid-week. The first video below is of the Falcon 9 making an incredibly satisfying landing at Cape Canaveral Sunday afternoon.
The videos following that, are one failed landing, and the static fire (and explosion) that did significant damage to the launch pad in September of 2016.
