Launch net very quiet, venting.

This is also the first commercial use of the autonomous flight termination system (AFTS), or autonomous flight safety system (AFSS) in Air Force-speak.

If there were a "Aerospace Bowl 2", they won it like the first one ... :D Now comes the endorsement deals and the fat contracts.

 

Next set of Company Milestones:

- Mil/Gov Contract fulfillment (2017+)

- Dragon 2 Proving, Shakedown & Test Flights (2017-2018)

- Falcon Heavy debut (2017)

- Falcon-9 Block 4 & 5 rollout (2017 - 2018)

- ITS Design and Prototyping Phase (2019+)

 

SpaceX are pretty much gonna have everyone throwing money at them now -- and OldSpace is SCREWED.

Musk:  Several reflights scheduled for later this year. Might fly as many as 6 reflights this year. FH two side boosters are being reflown. That will be interesting mission on FH... hopefully in good direction.  This core will have historic value.  Seeing if Cape might like to have it as something to remember the moment.  Present it as gift to cape

 

Musk:  Upper stage reuse is next.
