Re: SpaceX CREW-2 Launches Friday Morning At 5:49 Eastern
When I see a thread like this with so many people seeming to not believe a rocket actually went up it makes me question everything I read on this site.

Nuts.
 Quoting: MoViNgOnUp


the question is--why do you think a rocket taking off is anything special
They've supposedly been launching rockets since the 50s
If they went to the Moon & back---why should people to get fake-excited about this non-event
Rockets are old technology anyway
Returning to using rocket after the Space shuttles--just proves that space shuttles were FAKE
 Quoting: vivian tzamis 80275613


Because it's still impressive, not to mention beautiful. I appreciated todays especially since I'd never seen that jellyfish effect-I honestly thought it had blown up. I also was able to see the boosters coming down to the ocean to land. It's just cool. Not everything needs to be looked at through a skeptical lens. It's OK just to enjoy watching something because it's beautiful.

Forgot to actually set my alarm:(

Can you pm me your footage Mut?
 Quoting: 03


Sure, once I get it processed. I've got hours of footage of the astronauts walking out, it'll take days to process the whole raw data but I can do highlights to start.

What I don't get is why does the lift off always go from vertical to horizontal really quick???

They thought of that, and always use a convenient screen of trees.

I wish someone could get a few stealth drones in there, to record what is really going on, behind the tree-line.

It might conceivably be legit, in which case I would applaud Elon and his team.

And here's a hint, no, it doesn't.

Next landing I film will be from that spot, provided it's not inside the hazard zone...

You're ridiculous. The launches go at all times of the day. You hear and feel the sonic boom.

With that said, I won't waste more of my time arguing with someone halfway around the world doubting what I just saw from my own backyard.

 Quoting: vivian tzamis 80275613


Special effects? You can see it in person. The "jellyfish" effect is because it was launched towards the east right before dawn. The rocket rose into sunlight, illuminating the exhaust. I filmed it myself. By the way, I also filmed the first stage descending back into earth's shadow just before its entry burn. Meanwhile the second stage continued to stay in sunlight because it continued to climb in altitude instead...

The only thing better than watching a launch is reading the witless comments of supposed scholars who actually believe the earth is flat when this was scientifically proven centuries ago.

I always wonder, do flat-earthers play frisbee instead of ball games?

I watched the Atlantis space shuttle take off in the early nineties. They even had good special effects back then. ;)

Also my extended family was present at the Challenger launch when it exploded in '86.
