It’s looking like the falcon heavy will be used much more then i first expected. Lots of private payloads and components of the deep space gateway would be cheaper with @spacex FH with at least the side boosters being reusable. Falcon Heavy Block 5 will look 👌🏽. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ follow @that_spaceman_ for more! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #space #spacex #launch #earth #explore #mars #nextgeneration #falcon #falcon9 #falconheavy #bfr #nasa #big #huge #america #elonmusk #orbit #science #technology #new #blueorigin #dragon #crs #block #eagle #usa #atlas #electron #rocketlab #youtube

Every time i see a launch and landing i know we are closer to the future of human transportation, Cheap flights to space will enable holidays, research and will hopefully give a lot of people the chance to do something they never thought they could, float in space. The opportunity’s are endless. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ follow @that_spaceman_ for more! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #space #spacex #launch #earth #explore #mars #nextgeneration #falcon #falcon9 #falconheavy #bfr #nasa #big #huge #america #elonmusk #orbit #science #technology #new #blueorigin #dragon #crs #block #eagle #usa #atlas #electron #rocketlab #youtube

A Delta 4-Heavy will be launching the parker solar probe into the sun in just over one days time! well, i say into the sun, it will be dipping into the suns corona so that we can understand not only how it is heated but also how solar wind is accelerated. 11th Aug 7:33 - 8:38 UTC launch window. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ follow @that_spaceman_ for more! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #space #spacex #launch #earth #explore #mars #nextgeneration #falcon #falcon9 #falconheavy #bfr #nasa #big #huge #america #elonmusk #orbit #science #technology #new #blueorigin #dragon #crs #block #eagle #usa #atlas #electron #rocketlab #youtube

Second launch of the first block 5 booster taking place today 5:18-7:18 UTC with the launch of Merah Putih (Telkom-4). The turn around of this booster is only slightly slower then the that of the fastest block 4 but does include an extensive break down after the first launch of a block 5 booster. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ follow @that_spaceman_ for more! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #space #spacex #launch #earth #explore #mars #nextgeneration #falcon #falcon9 #falconheavy #bfr #nasa #big #huge #america #elonmusk #orbit #science #technology #new #blueorigin #dragon #crs #block #eagle #usa #atlas #electron #rocketlab #youtube

Who is going to be watching the first block 5 booster (B1046) launch Merah putih (Telcom-4) and complete it’s second mission 7th Aug 5:19 UTC. I’m hoping this booster gets plenty of use in the future. How many flights do you think it will complete? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ follow @that_spaceman_ for more! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #space #spacex #launch #earth #explore #mars #nextgeneration #falcon #falcon9 #falconheavy #bfr #nasa #big #huge #america #elonmusk #orbit #science #technology #new #blueorigin #dragon #crs #block #eagle #usa #atlas #electron #rocketlab #youtube

Dragon 2 on display at NASA JSC for the commercial crew announcement today. Although we won’t see the uncrewed test flight until November and the crewed in April 2019, i’m already getting excited about seeing people step out of some brand new space technology onto the I.S.S. Soyuz has been the only option for far too long. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ follow @that_spaceman_ for more! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #space #spacex #launch #earth #explore #mars #nextgeneration #falcon #falcon9 #falconheavy #bfr #nasa #big #huge #america #elonmusk #orbit #science #technology #new #blueorigin #dragon #crs #block #eagle #usa #atlas #electron #rocketlab #youtube

Who else is ready for the second launch and landing of a block 5 booster? The importance of this launch is incredibly high, block 5 reusability is essential for @spacex to keep moving forward with current plans and launch dates. Unfortunately we have another night launch so won’t be able to see a whole lot. Will you be tuning in on the 7th Aug 5:19 UTC? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ follow @that_spaceman_ for more!

I will have a link to my new YouTube channel ready for everyone on my next post in a few days time. My first video will be talking about the Spacex journey so far and where it’s going next. If you want any particular questions answered feel free to leave them on this post. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ follow @that_spaceman_ for more! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #space #spacex #launch #earth #explore #mars #nextgeneration #falcon #falcon9 #falconheavy #bfr #nasa #big #huge #america #elonmusk #orbit #science #technology #new #blueorigin #dragon #crs #block #eagle #usa #atlas #electron #rocketlab #youtube

4th August 5:19 UTC will hopefully be the second launch for the very first block 5 booster that launched back on may 4th. What this means is that the tear down was completed and everything is looking good for block 5. This will also be the 60th falcon 9 launch. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ follow @that_spaceman_ for more! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #space #spacex #launch #earth #explore #mars #nextgeneration #falcon #falcon9 #falconheavy #bfr #nasa #big #huge #america #elonmusk #orbit #science #technology #new #blueorigin #dragon #crs #block #eagle #usa #atlas #electron #rocketlab #youtube

While we wait for DM-1 and soon after the first manned launch from spacex falcon 9 and dragon 2 we have plenty to look forward too. hopefully a fairing catch by Mr. Steven, a second launch for a Block 5 booster also meaning the 15th reused booster and lastly spacex should reach 35-40 booster landings. I’m also rather excited for the parker solar probe launch and hearing how it’s getting along. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ follow @that_spaceman_ for more! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #space #spacex #launch #earth #explore #mars #nextgeneration #falcon #falcon9 #falconheavy #bfr #nasa #big #huge #america #elonmusk #orbit #science #technology #new #blueorigin #dragon #crs #block #eagle #usa #atlas #electron #rocketlab #youtube

After the success of the telstar mission a couple of days ago, my confidence for future launches and landings is super high. I’m really hoping Mr Stevens can catch a fairing half or two today, that would be a huge step in the right direction. 25th 11:39 UTC - Iridium-7 launch. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ follow @that_spaceman_ for more! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #space #spacex #launch #earth #explore #mars #nextgeneration #falcon #falcon9 #falconheavy #bfr #nasa #big #huge #america #elonmusk #orbit #science #technology #new #blueorigin #dragon #crs #block #eagle #usa #atlas #electron #rocketlab #youtube

First things first i would like to thank @_tom.cross_ for taking this amazing photo. I’m getting pretty comfortable watching launches of falcon 9 these days, they always seem to go perfectly. Next launch set for July 25th 11:30am UTC. Let’s hope we get a nice landing video. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ follow @that_spaceman_ for more! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #space #spacex #launch #earth #explore #mars #nextgeneration #falcon #falcon9 #falconheavy #bfr #nasa #big #huge #america #elonmusk #orbit #science #technology #new #blueorigin #dragon #crs #block #eagle #usa #atlas #electron #rocketlab #youtube
