Very impressive, especially when stage one lands back on Earth - for the fourth
time.

I've watched it three times now, Russell. Very impressive! The precision
of each stage including the simultaneous release of all 60 Star Link Satellites,
each one complete with individual autonomous navigation system, ion propulsion
drive and solar panels!

What a wondrous time we live in

Bummed the loss of video downlink for stage one on re-entry burn, only picked-up
video feed on the drone ship the moment prior to landing. But still pretty cool
catching the last seconds.

I didn't want to re-hash the word of the stream but this was really cool.
Thanks for the share!

Satellites over the Netherlands already beginning to show some separation.

I can say I've had the fortune to be at the second Space Shuttle launch in
early 80's when as a little kid I remember the Kennedy Space Center being
nothing more then a single building with limited amount of stuff. I also had
the Luxury to be there for the same exact tour for the Falcon Heavy Launch. I
can say as a middle aged man I do not get to emotional but, I can say it was
a very exciting feeling to be there and recall the differences. How far we have
come in this time is AMAZING. The funny thing to me now is SpaceX launches seem
almost boring, In a good way, Not because its not special but because SpaceX
has made it Repetitious and almost expected.

I'm glad to see this as its a great distraction for all the other crap going
on currently.

Thanks for sharing Cory. They never get boring. Just the other day I was showing
my sons the landing of both of the Falcon Heavy side boosters. I remember watching
it for the first time and it looks surreal, as if that should not be possible,
but that is the beauty of physics and math.

I like that, Miro "the beauty of physics and math"

Have you shown them today's mission with the release of the 60 StarLink satellites?
At their age, I think they'd get a kick out of seeing their launch. Maybe
follow their week long disbursement into their final parking orbits.

How cool is that!

Is that it, nothing more to add? Considering the event this post is highlighting,
if you’ve nothing more to say, it’s in all honesty, a little sad.

So what do you think about the event/achievement, your thoughts?

I like it, but I also think that there needs to be strict rules put in place
governing all launch assets. Space-junk is already outta control.

It's true. The low earth orbit debris question is a real concern, not only
for earth support platform safely, but future space launches in general.

How many virtual dollars need to be made before these companies become accountable
for cleaning up their own mess at Earth's expense.
Rehabilitation is the only way to secure our future?
I still like it! NASA doesn't really compare to SpaceX. I hope they're
both paying a hefty carbon tax - not unlike LEGO.
