    The astronauts are named Bob and Doug?

    Take off, eh!

    "You're about to face a vacuum, extreme variations in temperature, possible small meteor impacts and at least six kinds of intense radiation!"

    ---"No problem. We got this."

    "Hey look, it's raining."

    ---"Oh, shit!"

    It would be torture for me to be in a space capsule. If I sat there for 4-5-6 hours, and then they pull the plug, I'd probably have some kind of psychotic episode before they got me out of there.

    I hope today's rocket blows up before the astronauts or anybody else arrives. This is nothing more than theatre that Trump will use as a metaphor for recovery.

    People will confuse this with Crew Dragon, unfortunately.

    Here’s the thing with SpaceX: They work like software developers. They try things, things fail, they learn from their failures, they fix things, they try again. Over and over until everything works.

    Today’s launch is probably going to get rained out again, though.

    WTF. C’mon man.

    I get the frustration, but that would be one hellaciously expensive accident.

    We’re talking about human lives. I’d ask the jokes to respect that.
