:twisted: That's going to be an interesting legacy in the annals of manned spaceflight. Maybe instead, Zefram Cochrane.

Some good video from SpaceX and NASA on the docking and hatch opening.

The crew on ISS came up in a Lada, and now just checked out a Tesla.

It's all faked. The earth is actually flat.

So, it's more like a spinning motion, flippin' n' trippin. It's like a pancake. Now I see why the universe did pancakes to begin with - to make it see part of the reality. Earth.

Actually, we, Swedes was in the frontline there with that kid-o-calyptic show 'Earth is round like a pancake' : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBTr7iur2_U

Some context here. He is telliing the truth in a silly language.

I think you, BK, are lost in the pancake battery.

Russia's Passive Aggressive reaction to Manned Dragon.

Quote:
With this launch, even if it was ordered by NASA, this private company SpaceX has made Roscosmos null and void. They have shown Roscosmos who’s who. Everyone remembers Rogozin’s remarks about trampolines and such, so in fact this isn’t just resentment, it is a constant major headache for Roscosmos.... Look, if we compare the ships on a technological level, our Soyuz is in principle unable to compete with the SpaceX’s Crew Dragon..... But Elon Musk has built the ship of the future. It’s a seven-place spacecraft. It is re-usable. It is new technology. Accordingly, it beats Soyuz according to every parameter, by every technological indicator.

I wonder if he was around back when Obama made Roscosmos relevant by shutting down Orion and the shuttle. This was a known outcome a long time ago.

The inflight abort should be fun to watch. I remember it was reported that SpaceX was actually going to blow up the booster as part of the test. I'm wondering if that was fact.

Depends on how you define "fact".
