    Space X

    With the latest launch of an all civilian crew aboard, if you were given a chance to take a ride in it would you? I know I would.
    I love the smell of napalm in the morning. It smells like, victory!

    Nah. Just off principle. Elon Musk is a smart guy. I can't and won't try to discredit that. However he has a democratic train of thought and I won't support him in any way. Being in the automotive industry my whole life doesn't help. He is one of the people trying to make everything electric, which makes my life harder. I'm a automotive technician. I use a high school degree to fix what a college educated engineer couldn't get right the first time.

    If you are so proud of where you're from that you fly your flag everywhere, please go back there. Your flag offends me! American lives Matter!

    I am a huge SpaceX fan. Elon may be a twit and act like a child sometimes but he is driving the space race now. Between Super Heavy/Starship he will change the human species from a single planet to multiple-planet species. He is doing things that no one thought possible until he did it and now does it so well that it seems like it is part of normal everyday life. I for one can't wait until the first launch of Super Heavy/Starship it will be awesome.

    Before you decide if you want to go or not you might want to watch this video SpaceX published of all their crashes:

    Granted, these were mostly all on landing and they've had a good track record recently but it still doesn't inspire confidence and I was genuinely nervous watching the crew go up last night.

    If you are a big fan of gravity, try skydiving.

    All of those crashes were early on and from them trying to learn how to get a first stage to come back to earth and land so they could reuse it. But since those early days they have launched more often than the next rocket and also have a better record. Even the US government and NASA are confident of their rockets safety as both NASA and the Armed Forces have certified that it is okay to now use SpaceX's reused first stages to launch all missions. NASA even launched the last Crewed Dragon mission to the ISS on a reused rocket first stage.

    Gravity is not my friend. I'm having more and more "gravity attacks" as I get older I find it harder and harder to get up.
