OCN at its best again, sneaky SpaceX with their shenanigans... up to something sneaky hobbits. :rollseyesemojicausewedon'tseemtohaveanyoratleastI don't:

To defend them from their enemies. They say the user lives outside the net and inputs games for pleasure. No one knows for sure, but I intend to find out. Reboot!

actually... I'm guessing whoever insures items of that cost will do some minor investigation... If anyone insures it? Which I'd assume they do since insurance is just fancy gambling.

I wasn't being serious about the insurance thing. I'm sure there is tons of insurance involved in the program, but I doubt any of it would cover losing the rocket in the ocean because it wasn't secured.

Well previously when something exploded it turned out the satellite was insured but the rocket wasn't.

So it looks like the center only fell over and not into the ocean. It has returned to port.

Last I read it was being inspected for salt water damage to ensure that it would be reusable.

its was great launch with nice little surprises compared to regular single engine launches
SLS stuck the abort 2 ; spacex must prove they can do it
its like both sides are flip sides of each other
just hope SLS can stick their ISS automation???

Just FYI, SLS didn't stick anything, the Orion capsule mock-up for the abort test was launched on a Peacekeeper ICBM booster.

The Orion capsule has also been in development way longer than either SpaceX's Dragon 2 or Boeings Starliner, its a capsule with entirely different goals and not a competitor to the Dragon 2 nor the Starliner.

And the actual SLS hardware isn't even close to ready for launch testing yet.

Hurr hurr, there wasn't even a spy satellite on board this time, there wouldn't even be room for a "hidden secret payload" if that's what you think, spy satellites are massive and require almost the entire fairing to themselves.

What was launched was a massive amount of scientific satellites ranging from interesting to extremely important.
