SpaceX launched, the second stage successfully into orbit, and amazingly the first stage successfully landed on the droneship (barge). What an amazing 10 minutes!

Nice!

i went to see Buzz Aldrin with BK1 & BK2. They were excited but at some point in the session, when he started to talk about how to go to Mars, they kinda switched off.

Was still good to see him.
