Never gets old…!
Crap I missed this one!
The hopper Starship build is at least on a single chunk of construction now.
I’m not sure how to feel about this. Are we actually in the Flash Gordon timeline?
I have similar thoughts…
Here’s a decent size comparison article. The side-by-side with F9 makes it seem more real. Wow.

Ah yes, back when all rockets were just V2s.
I’ve lost count of the number of old SF films using stock V2 test footage (as instantly recognized by the checkerboard pattern to make camera tracking easier).
Can’t wait to see it fly.
SpaceX launch tonight at about 8:40 EST tonight. Launching a communication satellite, an Israeli lunar lander that was part of Googles XPrize and a Air Force Research Lab small satellite.
Gonna see if I can watch this live…(not in person…just the stream…LOL)
T-Minus 10 minutes!
I was just going to drive down and pick up pizza (we live too far out for delivery) - can they hold for 30 mins please? Thanks

It’s so freaking cool!
Just in case y’all missed it:
The crewed Dragon just docked with the ISS!
(Manned with a dummy but still cool)
Opening the hatch right now, live on NASA TV
Hatch is open!
I can’t get over how much the SpaceX hopper just looks like a shiny water tower. Test flights are going to be so odd.
Not the first time it’s been done:
ah… what could have been…
