Lol. I think you may be a bit out of touch. Falcon has been successfully landed and refused 76 times. Here’s the first one a couple years back.

Are you possibly referring to the starship prototype tests?

Don’t worry. You are not the only doubter. Boeing is full of old engineers who told Elon that it couldn’t be gone. Lol.

Here is the last one...yesterday. It’s pretty much a biweekly event.

Course they must have been on crack to think they could land a rocket on a barge.

Wait,,,

Yes, I was referring to yesterday's explosion, somewhat satirically. Historically, rocket launches have a hideously high catastrophic failure rate, and it will likely be SpaceX that will make that failure rate drop to a reasonable level. I know that SpaceX is almost literally light years ahead of other companies in making space travel a commercially viable idea. I personally don't think space travel is really a practical thing, but the incredible technologies that are developed in the process of exploring space make our own world better.

I agree that space travel is not practical but crossing the Atlantic wasn't practical either in 1620. Less than half of the Pilgrims survived the first year. I hope that nobody expects to conquer space without a few casualties.

To further appreciate what Elon has done, consider this:

The NASA rocket surgeons are saying that landing the Space Shuttle is like threading the needle from 10 floors up a skyscraper with winds blowing at 50 miles an hour.

For my Cybertruck, just doing the 120 from Merced through Tiioga Pass to Lee Vininng on full FSD mode pulling my trailer will be good enough for me.

Yah that Elon. What a guy. The same idiot who said they’ll be able to land and reuse rockets some day.

Wait.....,
Waiting. They have all blown up so far so whats your point?

You mean they have all blown up except the 76 successful missions that have been reused in the last two years. [emoticon]. Lol.

I think you might be referring to the test SN series “Starship” rockets that they have been testing lately.

And Teal launched rockets meant to blow up for an actual failure tests.

Same tests they regular do in collision safety tests for cars..

But whatever, let's just hate and heckle.[emoticon]

I watched the last Starship flight from start to finish. On landing I noticed it seemed like it had a bit of a lean to it. There was also fire coming out the bottom and a remotely operated deluge nozzle was lobbing water at the base trying to extinguish it. Maybe that was why SpaceX ended the webcast before the big bang? The explosion video that made the rounds of the Internet was not from SpaceX.

Anyway, seems like the concepts they're testing had some measure of success. Space is hard. My wife was born and raised in Brevard County, FL and had a front row seat to many of NASA's FUD'S or whatever Elon calls his failures.

That said, I'm still fascinated with the cartoonish appearance of Starship. I'm waiting for Marvin the Martian & Bugs Bunny to step out of it.

I'm envious. I have not seen one and that's on my bucket list.
