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.

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.

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.

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."

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.

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.

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 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!

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.

I was born and raised and still live 40 mins from the space center and I'm excited for tomorrow launch. Hopefully the weather improves and wont be so cloudy by tomorrow afternoon. I was born in 88 so the space shuttle is the only thing I know. I love the old apollo days so this reminds me of that. Their space suits are hideous though haha
