They have a lovely Process Engineer, Kate Tice, cohosting the webcast.

As if launching a rocket wasn't cool enough..

Watching the report is such a millennial event.. The on-air personalities of open collar, relaxed youngsters vs the clean shaven, coat and tie Walter Cronkite of the NASA glory years. I find it to be an interesting juxtaposition from a sociological standpoint.

Hey, they're looking for a "Full Stack Software Engineer"... if you're looking for a job...

Next Launch for Space is is planned for NET (not earlier than) February 28.. the Echostar 23 satellite launch from LC39a.

Was just noticing that myself... a difference of corporate culture, SpaceX vs NASA, as well as generational.

Also I noticed that everyone on the webcast from SpaceX were wearing a second hat... They're not professional PR people, they're engineers, etc, who happened to be hosting the webcast.

Watching rocket launches is cool... watching them LAND just never gets old!

Hey, I remember my grandmother thinking Walter Cronkite was a hottie back then... the sociology seems relative to the era.

I worked with 2 incredibly attractive female aerospace engineers, and several more that were very pleasing to the eye, and lots of fun to hang out with.

We need more women in the hard sciences and engineering.

I am in awe every time I see video of a launch. I go back to when launches were not all that successful and I am reminded of all the things that can go wrong (but pretty much don't any more).

And then returning parts to a landing pad ... well that's just unimaginable to me!

Paul, thanks for keeping us up to date on this stuff.

That was fantastic! As was said above, it's great that the commentators are actually the ones doing the heavy lifting, so to speak, and it certainly doesn't hurt that they're good looking as a bonus.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Seeing it land was cool. I can't imagine what it takes to do that!
