Anyone watch it live yesterday?

We watched it live over the projector with popcorn & soda for the kids.

Me explaining the importance to the kids and my daughters only comment was that they weren't social distancing  ::) Anyhow, was good and entertaining to watch.

Before moving to the sunset coast (the best side) my mother had a condo on indialantic beach

I used to ride my bike up to cape Canaveral to watch shuttles launch. When challenger failed it was almost like an end of innocence for me.

Years later, driving across Alabama when discovery failed ending that era

I'm still an astronomy geek. Built a Cassegrain telescope out of concrete form tubing as a kid, and used to go to amateur viewing parties. we'd see how many messier objects we could spot in a night. Arc over to arcturus, speed on to spica. Got my whole scout troop badged just dragging them along.

I've been a spaceX fanboy since day one. I dont just watch live, I rewatch for missed details

I'm glad we're back in the game, and wish we were far ahead of where we are.

Jim, reassure the kids there is an isolated quarantine period pre mission, regardless of the pandemic.

I'm with you Zach.

I miss the coming and goings.  At the risk of sounding brutal...I wonder if the US would have it population now if every time a boat sank, explores stop exploring.

I thought it about years ago when I was young health and had great eyesight..to an astronaut would have been awesome  I knew I never would have made it but it was a dream.  A dream that I would have told my family...don't stop exploring.

I watch shows and movies on space travel........ the flaws of Star Trek aside... it made us dream.

I hope Space X takes us to a new level.  I'd volunteer to work for cheap.

Bubba hugs y'all!

 I recall watching the early launches into space

they were strapped in and bounced all over the place full of vibration it looked as if the rocket they rode in was a rough ride.  it  must have been terrifying from all the shaking and being strapped in to so much energy and being in the early spacecraft. thinking what would shake apart from the vibrations . 

 When I tried to point out the difference from then and now.

with the spaceX launch and how they were just sitting there moving their hands and arms like they were sitting on their living room lazy boy recliner. with no vibrations no shaking I thought wow this is amazing . when I tried to point this out to my children .  My kids said that was a long time ago dad ?  wake up and get with the times dad .

I thought OK I am old . this new world we live in . with so much potential . it is great time to be alive. 

the obstacles may be many . there are still difficulties

in the right light , If we see the progress there is much to be proud of .

spacecraft that go from point A to point B . like a smooth ride on a new rode. Just wanted to point out the progress
