 Quoting: Ascanius


The thread isn't about me. It's about an awesome new rocket launch featuring first stage recovery. You should care that this innovative technology is driving down launch costs, saving money for the taxpayer, and enabling greater access to space in the private sector. If you don't care, that's fine, but then why did you click the thread?

Re: SpaceX Iridium NEXT launch from Vandenberg Live Now
If you guys don't understand why this is historically important then let's talk a bit.

Bing or Google "transportation innovation impact on economics"

Read the many articles on how transportation innovation directly impacts our lives in so many fundamental ways.

Basically any time a transportation technology has reached reasonable costs the world has changed radically.

BTW: The internet involves transportation of information.

SpaceX is in the process of reducing cost to transport people and goods into space. It is doing this in an iterative model, so each launch is a step closer to the ultimate goal.

Each successful launch brings us closer to lowering costs on spaceflight. If they reach their goal of $5-$6 million per launch instead of $50-$70 then our society is going to undergo a dramatic change.

It could cost you a reasonable $200/kg to launch. Instead of $30,000 / kg. Imagine the possibilities at this kind of price point. Business opportunities become possible that are impossible today.

So these launches are watching history unfold. History is a series of small changes that appear to be sudden and large when viewed from a distance (from the far future).

These are arguably the most important launches to ever be conducted by humans.

Pay attention to every one.
