A super 14 minute video of the launch.  What a great display of multi view video angles!  The return landing of the 2 booster rockets was stunning!.

The guy is innovative as hell. The future ahead is so exciting. I mean, we've already lived to see the Internet, thousands of CDs replaced by something that fits in your pocket, screens that use less power and provide images that as children we couldn't have imagined, and now spaceships that return from space by remote control. I don't know if we will see a manned mission to Mars in the next 30 years but if we do, this guy will be the one doing it.

Just watched it. Simultaneous booster return landing, too! Spectacular and the excitement of the crowd was infectious.

Those boosters landing back on earth was incredible. The ultimate in recycling/reuse!

The center stage dropped hard though but they gave it 50/50

Elon Musk:
> The center one lit but the outer two did not, and that was not enough to slow the stage down. Apparently it hit the water at 300 miles per hour and took out 2 of the engines on the drone ship. That sounds like some pretty fun footage, so if the cameras didn't get blown up as well then we'll save that for the next blooper reel.

After the Tesla car made a number of orbits,  the booster Successfully fired and the car and driver are on their way out to Mars and start orbiting the Sun.

Elon Musk said the orbit should be good for about a billion years unless it burns up in Mars atmosphere. Anybody know if the camera only lasts as long as the battery did (which was supposed to be about 12 hours)?
