    Success is a wonderful thing.



    BTW:
    I once welded a part that actually went in the reaction chamber of a nuclear reactor.

    I never heard from them again.... :dunno:
    :supergrin:

    It was part of a reactor core. The machinist screwed-up, I doubt that it was used or sold. Probably sitting on an engineer's or CEO's shelf as an example of what they build.

    The ability of SpaceX to land the first stage on a small platform impresses the heck out of me but the ability to land it at the launch site like they have done is really impressive.
