Congratulations to SpaceX, amazing event and a major step forward for the company as well as commercial space access. The only questions that remain are whether the core made it back as well as the payload deployment/trajectory situation. All eyes will no doubt start to shift onto the BFR as of this moment.

What great first test flight. Glad it came off doing what it set to do!

Has there been word what happened to the central booster? There seem to be been a blackout on what became of it when it was suppose to land on the drone ship.

Initial word is that it did not make it back.

Bummer, well 2 out of 3 isn’t too bad. Hopefully they didn’t loose the drone ship too.

The webcast did not work for me. I watched as countdown reached zero, then…nothing. What happened? Was the problem at your end or mine?
