Musk deserves to be thumping his chest today. To state you will send manned missions back into space is one thing, but think of all the steps, successes and failures, it took to get here. And developing the technology of recovering/reusing the rockets. Pretty amazing.
I’m pretty sure some of that chest-thumping is due to the $775 million bonus he just got from Tesla a few days ago

I watched the launch. It was cool. But every time they said: "Bob and Doug" I thought about this:

Same here!
But I thought it cool that while building all the stuff they had the Astronauts pictures on the work orders. Really humanizes the effort for the hundreds of support people.

Looks like an estimated splashdown at 11:42 am PST tomorrow. I’ll have to set an alarm to tune back in at that time.
