Default Falcon Heavy, a beautiful flight

Awesome watching the first lanch of Falcon Heavy yesterday evening...

For those who missed it, here's a link to a short video:

Wonderful to see the two boosters coming down and landing side by side!
Also when you see the first zoomed on view of one of the boosters heading back REALLY fast.

Better than SF!

Longer video here:

And here's a view from the camera inside the roadster, in orbit:

Apparently the core stage ran out of fuel just before it was due to land on the barge, and crashed, but even so...

I suspect it's a good time to make a detailed model of the rocket, and put it on Turbosquid! (I don't have the time).

And here's my take, on how they should have presented it!

That was incredible. I am so glad that one day this will be used to take men (and women) where no one has gone before (sorry, I had to write that.)
