    Was watching the launch with my father and took a few pictures just before the approach

    seemed to be a very flawless 19 hours flight

    very impressive

    I watched the launch with my nieces. Had a blast explaining all the questions they had, like: Why the rocket had vapour coming from it, explaining how fast they were really going, actually blew their minds when I explained that when in orbit you're not in 'zero-g', but continuously falling towards earth but missing.

    Playing KSP for years really helped. Video games are awesome XD

    Indeed, hopefully this will pave the way for a lot more successful flights! Could be some exciting times in the next 5-10 years Cool.

    Oh yes if this continues and next gen rocket is 100% reusable hopefully it will pay way to more affordable flights and in that more flights in general. It seems as a very important stepping stone for next gen if space flight.

    Watched this online. The launch into space was flawless and awesome. Good they called off the first launch for safety. No reason to risk the first flight from U.S. soil since 2009, when the last shuttle launched. It *HAD* to be flawless... big win too for Elon Musk, I bet he cracked open a wine bottle after that launch.

    My wife and I watched this first thing this morning and the whole family watched the launch yesterday. Super excited that everything has been pretty much textbook for the mission so far and hope this is just the first of many, many missions to come.
