Amazing Clean SpaceX Launch/Land footage

Postby Spider » Mon May 01, 2017 2:38 pm

Video from : youtu.be


launching early on a very clear morning on a very low orbit mission...can see every detail of the entire launch, boostback, entry, and landing continuously from cameras on the ground. Pretty great seeing all this first stage telemetry. It's a black mission, so nothing at all from the second stage/payload.

yeah I watched this when I got up this morning it was pretty damn glorious being able to see the different views. it is so unnatural at around 20:12 you think it is CGI. also around 20:38. looks fake, even though i know it isn't

They should show that to Kim Jung Un-Stable, then say can your rockets do that?
