The Lounge>Space Exploration megathread
DaFace 09:40 AM 06-01-2014
Since a number of cool things are happening in space exploration these days, we'll widen the scope of this thread a smidge. Conversation about all things space exploration are welcome, whether it be from NASA, SpaceX, ULA, Blue Origin, or anyone else. Chances are most of the discussion will still be about SpaceX since they love to make things public and fun, but nothing's off limits. I'll eventually get around to modifying the OP to include resources for other companies too, but in the meantime, feel free to post any cool stuff you run across.

Same here. The simultaneous landing was awesome.

No word on the center core apparently. Hopefully we hear soon, but even if it didn't make it for some reason, I don't know how you could call this anything but a HUGE success. Crazy.

T+28:22 from the press kit. Odd that they aren't covering it at all, but I guess we just have to watch Twitter for news.

And then, somewhere around T+6 hours they'll try and start it up one more time.

Core should already be down. Camera went out on the ship. Don't think it made it...
