    The April 20, 2019 link will take you to a twitter page.

    Did SpaceX's Crew Dragon capsule EXPLODE?
    There's a short unauthorized? video of the capsule explosion.

    So far Tuesday's the 30th launch is unaffected as this was on an earlier model of the Crew Dragon capsule. It was just the capsule's abort rockets being tested.

    I caught it yesterday at T-0:06 it's the first launch I've seen in weeks with holidays and heart attacks and hospital getting in the way lol, it's good to see they are finally getting some good landing footage on the barge.

    Hey John it's great to see you're back in the saddle, now don't be over-extending yourself. That's easy for me to say, hain't?

    In my younger days I didn't miss a one no matter what time it was and it's still exciting when I do catch 'em live but with today's tech i.e. video, I'm content with the replays, I do need my beauty sleep, don't cha-know.
    With the Moon landing Sunday July 20, 1969 iirc the big three networks started telecasting around noon to catch the landing at 4:18pm and broke for local news and shows at 6pm then came back at 9pm to watch Armstrong's first step at 10:56pm and finished broadcasting about 1am. I was glued to the TV all day long.

    Yea, that was a nice shot from the 1st stage descending but they didn't have one from the barge itself and then I wondered why no off barge shot from a support boat? Well, it was dark wasn't it? Duh!

    Don't know if you noticed it or not but I'm glad there wasn't an explosion. Check the video from 15:35 to 16:38 until the booster straightened out and the camera angle couldn't see it any more but there was these strange exhaust flames coming out of side of the exhaust shield, it's a bit low but above the red line is the exhaust cone and that flame is I'd say, running up to touch the booster itself. Here's one snip that I got and if you watch the video there is worse:

    I'm not privy of course, but I wonder if they were trying out some new type of exhaust cone, the whole time from launch to 17:15 that rocket's exhaust looked different.

    Well Hey! That's it for now, you take care of yourself, ya hear?

    CRS - 17 Mission Update...




    There's too many video's to list in a post so, if you go here: CRS-17 Mission you can take your pick, I like the one about towin' the barge with booster back to the Cape, watch it swaying.

    2nd one down is this video, the towin' is 8th from this one.

    information   Information
    After about a month attached to the International Space Station, SpaceX’s CRS-17 Dragon is expected to be unberthed and released. After several hours drifting away from the outpost, it should perform a deorbit burn and splashdown in the Pacific Ocean.

    CRS-17 Dragon unberthing, splashdown (TBD)

    Next up:
    Sat., June 22: SpaceX Falcon Heavy launch with NASA technology payloads. SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket will carry nearly two dozen satellites to space for the Department of Defense’s Space Test Program-2 (STP-2) mission from historic Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Among the payloads are NASA technologies including a small satellite to test the performance of non-toxic spacecraft fuel and an advanced atomic clock to improve how spacecraft navigate.
