Space Launch Succesful!

It was the first time since 2011 from US soil that people are being sent up into space!

You can take off ur upvote if you upvote if you think this is a cycle farm or something

Cool! I’m not gonna watch everything but it looks noice!

Wilke000 (500)

Launch is at 4:something @Bookie0

Wilke000 (500)

Upvote so everyone will know @Bookie0 please!

Bookie0 (4544)

Uhh I don’t know if I should upvote just so everyone watches it; repl.it is kinda for coding don’t you think so? @IndyCarter

Wilke000 (500)

Yeah, but I just want to let everyone know, ya know @Bookie0

Wilke000 (500)

And do you know how much computer work that took to do @Bookie0? All those machines are coded! So it DOES have to do with coding @Bookie0!

Bookie0 (4544)

Mehhh I’ll upvote, but if you get warned, I’ll take it off. It shouldn’t be a cycle farming this, also as cool as space is, it isn’t really related to coding I think.... @IndyCarter

Wilke000 (500)

Ok @Bookie0 it's fine, you can take it off tomorow or later

Bookie0 (4544)

Yes, I see what you mean, but watching the space Launch and providing a link doesn’t really... @IndyCarter

@IndyCarter I'm still watching it on TV, but it got scrubbed. They're gonna try to launch again on Saturday at 3:22 PM EDT. : ) 🚀

@Bookie0 +1, read the conversation.
@IndyCarter this is literally the definition of begging for upvotes. Please dont do this again :(

Wilke000 (500)

It is not @ChezCoder! I just want to let people know about it!!!😣

ChezCoder (1553)

@IndyCarter yes. But if you really want people to know about it, don't force it to come. Let it flow naturally. Just let this be a friendly reminder :D

Wilke000 (500)

It's awesome!

I'm watching it now!

Why am I doing so many headers!?

I love markdown!

I watched it! Go SpaceX! My dad was once an engineer for some rockets but took another job because it paid more. But my dad is still enthusiastic as ever about space. I hope that one day, in my lifetime, I can watch people land on Mars. This launch was inspiring to watch. This launch is proof that SpaceX is getting close to launching people to Mars.

I watched both. For some reason, on the first, I wasn't that excited since my first ever launch (ZUMA) and Falcon Heavy, but on the second one my brain kinda forgot it was important and I just treated it like a CRS for some reason.

Successful launch today! :D

Isn't it the 1st time since 2003 (on US soil)

Wilke000 (500)

No, @DannyIsCoding it was postboned to Saturday at 3:22 PM EDT.🚀

@IndyCarter Yay! I still have a chance to watch it 😃

It is the first time since 2011 that people are being sent up into space!

First time on American soil. The sad part is that NASA did none of it. They just paid SpaceX to do all the testing. It’s depressing, really.

DynamicSquid (4377)

@CodeLongAndPros oh really? I though NASA and SpaceX worked together on those things...

CodeLongAndPros (1465)

@DynamicSquid I mean yeah, but NasA didn’t make the rockets. They don’t design the Tech. They have the launch sites as a relic of the 60’s. The have the people as a relic of the 90’s. All NasA does is send cameras up. This needs to change. We choose to go to the moon and do the other things. If anybody in power made that goal again, NasA could not do it.

DynamicSquid (4377)

@CodeLongAndPros oh yeah true, but Nasa and SpaceX have very different goals. Nasa is about science, they have no rush to go to mars, but spacex is is private, which means they need something that'll give them a profit

CodeLongAndPros (1465)

@DynamicSquid And look how that turned out with M$. I don’t mean to sound like NASA haven’t done anything good, but they are stagnant. SpaceX is where the innovation is now.

CodeLongAndPros (1465)

@DynamicSquid I just feel that NASA is now a puppet. Just to make Americans feel good.

CodeLongAndPros (1465)

@IndyCarter They should Open Source their rockets.

AtriDey (170)

@CodeLongAndPros I mean, they are trying to make profit. Also, NASA would have a fit just because 'murica.

syflexer (467)

i was but it was a no go because of the weather

Wilke000 (500)

Don't worry @PDanielY, weather delay

DynamicSquid (4377)

:(, it got cancelled due to bad weather...

the next launch available is on Mar. 30th
