🤗 Thank you!

  1. I personally watched the flight of this rocket all the way from fresno, california. Skies were super clear so i went out in my back yard. Had no clue its possible to see a rocket launch from 150 miles away. I saw the whole gamut. Ascent, meco, staging, and relight. It was surreal.

  2. Different colored light amplification through stimulated emittted radiation!?!?! Hope it reflects off a Disco ball 💃 🕺🏿
