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.

Usually when we don't see anything it means something bad happened.

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.

Maybe it was just the camera angle, but it looked like it kicked sideways all of a sudden.

That was pretty dang cool. Can not wait to get home and watch it on the big screen vs. the phone.

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:

I have a new subtitle for this launch.

 

Falcon Heavy, or How to Teabag the Competition, Elon Musk style!  :rofl:

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.
