Incredible landing, but it's too bad that the central section apparently missed its platform at sea.

Yes, agreed. Space X pulled off barge landings in the past. This time they were trying to land three boosters at one time. Itís hard. They will try until they perfect it.

Calm down dude, I was just saying my piece, you act like I was attacking you or something. Also, I never said anything about not liking it. I said it was cool.

Agreed! American product design and Scifi has not been as cool since NASA allowed it's self to become boring.

Just saw the twin touchdown VERY cool....I'll admit I've not been consuming as much news lately, but it feels like local media has ignored this story....Were it not for VK I probably would not have heard of this.

I wonder how well it will handle such a trip. The Enterprise took a severe beating doing the same sort of thing, but that was around the sun so who knows.

To paraphrase Red Forman, you'd know it if I were actually riled up.

I would be inclined to use "baloney" over "bologna", but the former may be more commonly used up here, I don't know.

Way back in the 1980s , when MLP was a toy who didn't yet have his (her ?) own cartoon show , the TV advertising had a song that went along with the narrative where someone was singing "My little pony .........." and I don't remember the rest of the real song because all the kids of that time would sing what I posted above , and that of course is what has stuck in my head all these years whenever I see anything MLP related . Ok , so it's been a few years since the 1980s , but I figured at least Mad Man may have heard it , being into the Brony thing & all . Just a goofy kid's song kinda like "The worms crawl in , the worms crawl out , the worms play pinochle on your snout" , that sort of thing .

That Tesla in space, is awesome!

I grew up in the 80s too, boys had a different MLP rhyme to tease the girls from the same commercial, a bit less polite though!

For sure I remember that one too ! I was in my 30s during the 1980s so I remember them well . In fact , I still drive my 1980s car , yes this IS my daily driver on all but snowy days

Thankfully , the car with me in it has never been much more than a few inches off of the ground , and I don't think it'd run in space anyway like Musk's car would .

To bring all this back on subject, every time I see these posts referring to "MLP," I think of "Mobile Launcher Platform":
