When you consider the energies being casually tossed about, and that one year ago a controlled re-entry was fantasy, I'd say it was fucking amazing.

And seeing the two boosters land simultaneously and so delicately... That was almost surreal. Even golden-era SF movies staggered their rocketships a little so they didn't look too perfect.

Ye just watched it myself, pretty amazing shit.

Currently it seems the core rocket ran out of ignition fluid so could not light all rocket motors, so a 300MPH landing on water kinda broke it.

There is a live feed from the Tesla now up and running.

 

 

And a looping feed of an Interview With Elon Musk post Heavy Falcon test.

This is a pretty good channel actually.  Gotta love the videos where they pull stuff apart so you don't have to (which is what most of his videos are) - this one about a special modding project.

Trouble is has removing the roof has removed a massive amount of stiffness from the frame, making the thing a bit of a death trap. Monocoque chassis rely on the pillars and roof for that stiffness.

That issue is addressed by the fact that the chosen engine transplant would be lucky to get it above walking pace.

It also melts the fabric of spacetime, causing temporary gravitational anomolies which can throw nearby objects into erratic orbits.

Looks like Pipeline is no more, so the index page for Things I Won't Work With is gone, but at least the individual pages are still available.

The Winter Olympics.  Might put in a decent effort to watch more.

As an overall sporting spectacle, it shits all over the Summer games.

I notice on Netflix there is a new Marvel show, Black Lightning

African-American, wearing a black outfit with yellow lightning bolts

 

On TV last week the old disaster movie Earthquake was on

One of the characters was a Daredevil motorcycle rider

African-American, wearing a black outfit with yellow lightning bolts

Made me LOL
