I'm trying to relay to my wife just how pivotal a moment this is in human history. She just doesn't care.
Succeed, and the floodgates open for commercial spaceflight.
Fail, and the doors could quickly shut as we watch humanity take a massive step backwards.

I've never been so nervous for something I have zero participation in other than as a viewer.

On SoaceX YouTube channel they have a compilation of their rockets failing and exploding.
I can think of no other company that embraces their mistakes in such a way.
"You look up at the night sky and realize we have gone barely not at all into it and it goes on forever"

Words of wisdom from CBS this morning

Gosh, how many sleepless hours & nights these people are gonna go through until this marvelous 'Dragon' flying back home to Earth. Hats off to all those who have the nerves of steel to make this happen.
Hope everything goes well.

“When you look up into the night sky, you realize that humans have barely gone into it, and that it goes on—forever.”

Well said.

Missed a big story point: this is the first time a spacecraft, rocket, rocket engines, and even the space suits, have all been made by the same manufacturer. Previously each was made by different manufacturers, and this is still true of the contemporary Boeing Starliner. Bonus:
These SpaceX items and the Tesla Model Xs (ride to launch pad) result from the mind and drive of one man.
dipping our toes in the cosmic ocean, good luck for tomorrow SX

So you showed the only failures spaceX has had and shown explosions for shock value. This rocket has a very safe launch record and has the most safe and tested abort system. These guy are in the best hands.

3:56 I am convinced that this is a "pointy end up, flamey end down" reference. For anyone who doesn't get it, a (fantastic) space youtuber called Everyday Astronaut's phrase for the rocket being ok when it's sitting on the pad is "pointy end up, flamey end down."
From the other side of 'The Pond', I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I hear many people dislike Elon Musk. I judge a person by their actions and Elon Musk is an Ace. Good Luck you deserve it
CBS is the only news network that i've seen, that gave this event a 5 minute segment

Don Jones
Don Jones:
Usual media fail: you just had to include several minutes of old explosions that minimally related to the story, "balanced" by one sentence, that SpaceX has had ~80 successful launches in a row since those early days. The explosion of the capsule was the only one directly related to the story. One launch explosion and an early testing explosion, identified as such, are plenty to accompany the theme that SpaceX started from scratch and had to overcome a steep learning curve. Boom Boom Boom - sheesh, try respecting your audience more.

Time-edit-wise: leave out the boom boom, include the very pertinent successful Demo 1 mission.

HOW ABOUT THOSE ROCKETS LANDING? I'd like to see that in person.
I live about 1 hour 20 minutes away. Gonna go to Cape Canaveral to see it. Hopefully the weather holds up
We learn from our mistakes. Space x is the future🔥
I'm so buzzed for this launch i can't wait! I'm sure it'll be a success and then afterwards, hopefully in a short period of time we'll be biting our nails when Satrship is going up :D SapceX rocks!
"From us soil"...DUHHHHHH get over yourself america....
Welp the way 2020 is going.... this is the chance to turn this year around

Mike Kellum:
I love this stuff. Always have since being a little boy in the early 1960’s. But I have to, those are the lamest spacesuits I have ever seen. They look like they were from a B SciFi movie of the 50’s. They had better looking suits in the original Planet of the Apes.

"Will be set back indefinitely?" I don't think so, spacex will get to it and figure out what went wrong and lunch again probably by end of year.
I'm pressing my thumbs for ya guys over there to make the future we all want possible ! Love from the founders of the rocket to the pioneers from Germany.
Young man, go up.

God’s speed gentlemen! We are all praying for your success in this endeavor! You are truly all heroes!! 🙏✊🏻
I have a fear of flying. Yes, flying, and I am having the same feelings I get before I step into a plane just from hearing this. I am soooo nervous for these guys. Space exploration is very slow, and if this goes wrong, we might lose our chance to experience a revolutionary space era in our lifetimes, and I am only 20!

Thanks so much for uploading. I got the opporunity to witness a rocket launch in 2018. Incredible experience. I shared a pretty solid clip of the trip on my channel.
Wasn't successful. Well, (🤷‍♂️) guess we're done indefinitely.
