Awesome!!  Getting a little confused with all the cameras.  Can't tell which side booster is which!  lol  Minor details right now though.

Bottom two are side cores. Top left is center core.

Was it the ol' Falcon punch just for good measure?

Maybe ... nobody knows yet. Watch Elon's Twitter. He's usually the first one to say something.

Someone better take a hose to those OldSpace folks... Smells like they soiled themselves... :p

 

Tory Bruno wished 'em good luck earlier, but it dripped of insincerity ... kinda like the murderer wishing his grumpy ex-wife hadn't died? Kinda like that. :laugh:

Why is there no camera feed from the vehicle as it moves further away to the point we see the entire planet?

 

I'm hoping that there will be some live tracking available for the car. Some way to see where it is in its billion year orbit. Live video feed from the car would be incredible, but technically challenging I'm sure.

Because the Earth is flat.  Or because that's a lot of dataflow that would be pointed at a satellite that's not designed to take incoming data from that direction.
