My rockets never go anywhere

I posted a new Elon quote in the upper part of this page. Check it out. It is him talking about his rockets, again. Maybe some day I will brag about my rockets!

Anyway, today SpaceX is static firing their 9 engines on the pad, before the first Dragon flight on 12/7. What an exciting time to be alive in the development of space exploration.

See some more Elon quotes, including one about slaughtering sacred cows, at this Aviation Week link.

  1. Were you able to watch the webcast? It was choppy for me. You’d think they could get that right after all these years!

  2. I started watching, with good video, but then a meeting came up, so I didn’t actually see the static fire. The replay on youtube looked like the streaming was not very good. Also, the test was not a total success, something with engine 6, so they are running it again tomorrow (Saturday). Unfortunately, I have not heard exactly when the next attempt is besides reading about 24 hours.
