    Nice job. What kind of code is behind the booster landing?

      Assembly for sure.

      Not much effort to make sure the performance critical path is all written in assembly.

      Yup. And no way he could have done this in his socialist, shit hole, country of birth.

      You are right. He needed a team of smart immigrants and smart non immigrants which I also like to call smart people from different corners of the world, to accomplish such a task.

      I welcome legal immigrants who love this country, want to assimilate, and become American, Elon Musk included.

    Bravo to Elon musk. Finally someone from the valley in the past 30 years who makes it by building something other than a website or an app

      I mean to be fair if he hadn’t built a “website or an app” he wouldn’t be able to fund this. Ijs

    I was watching the synchronised landing of the 2 boosters. I then alt-tab-ed to my terminal. I was coding a web app. Fuck. Left me depressed for the rest of the day.

      Don’t feel so sad. Rocket launch is nothing new. We had rockets in space even at 1960s. There was no web app at the time. You are working on newer tech.

    What is the significance of this launch aside from this was triple times heavier rocket with a Tesla car inside? Not sarcastic, it is a serious question. Will it orbit sun? If so, shouldn’t we wait until it reaches there? Or is it just that it is a private company with less cost?

      Heavier payloads mean they can send larger stuff into space more cheaply
      Feb 6, 2018
    • Microsoft Tfvghytdg
      Orbit the sun? It didn’t even have to take off to do that.

    • Apple / Eng IbVh04
      Much cheaper access to deep space. This means more frequent trip to the Moon, to Europa, to Titan, etc.

    The sole purpose of all of this is to save Matt Damon and not humanity. But it was really cool to watch those boosters do an almost synchronized landing.

      It’s actually a good argument for capitalism too. Sure they used a government facility but what SpaceX is doing is amazing.

    If I understand falcon heavy’s payload capacity correctly, it is actually capable of lifting Trumps enormously fat ass into space, very impressive

    Watching the launch from the Fremont was truly an experience I will never forget. So much excitement!

    Fair enough. However he went ALL in after he sold PayPal. Jeff bezos is richer than him, started blue origin earlier than spacex. And still has far less to show. He’s one of the few who literally bet the rest of his life on things that were some of the least sexy industries. He could very well ending up penny less. That’s some balls

    • Maybe Elon will figure out a cost effective way to do carbon capture. While exxxxxxxxpensive, still cheaper than hauling billionaires to Mars and making that work.

      He'll probably need to with the amount of CO2 he releases with the rocket launches...

      Those billionaires probably prefer to be hauled away. I don't take any of them as people persons. They couldn't give a s**t about the people who just do all their menial tasks.

      Okay....Branson is probably the exception.
