  1. So, is there ever going to be a point that we will run out of room for new satellites around earth?

  2. 110th flight of this booster…my jaw just drops…I slowly whisper "What?"… Jaw still down as I type and chuckle a little 🙂

  3. Get that Tesla so you don’t pollute with your car, we need to blow off these rockets everyday so a multi billionaire can make some more money sending up more and more rockets. Then, in 5 years when the satellites fall out of the sky, we can send more rockets up to endlessly pollute low earth orbit and the atmosphere all at the same time. But don’t forget to buy a Tesla, you dirty pigs. Short sighted, don’t ya think?

  4. 6:37 Fact: dude on top of Thibet has lower latency on Counter Strike servers than dude in upstate New York.

  5. To imagine that millions in oppressive countries can now enjoy free internet without ideological firewalls is a huge plus for the West. Elon's name deserves a place in History. Plus he is in a class of his own. Well done!

  6. Not a coincidense that my German owned Telecom here in Greece decided to lower broadband (cellphone) unlimited internet charge to practically 6.5 euros/month. They used to charge you 15 EU/month just for unlimited YouTube access before that. I once had to spend 70 euros just for downloading one online game (Elite Dangerous) for my PS4 including game price. (Later the game company also cancelled their PS4 version :-/ ) A building with 30 families can now own a 200 Mbit stable connection with just 200 $/month. Thank you Elon Musk.

  7. 50 more unnecessary edits would make it look even more real for the space fanboys who will never understand why all those edits are absolutely necessary.

  8. Keep both screens on in future. Even if its dark. The landing and maneuvers are far more exciting than just watching a engine just burn.

  9. Unfortunately missed due to timing in UK. Deep sleep and dream time! Certainly worth watching later as it is an experience that stirs the heart each time. ❤
