#1 Quite a show. Whatever the frontman's issues and problems may be, the team once again did a fantastic job.

#4 Getting the first stage to reliably hit the barge should be as easy as incorporating the Tesla auto drive software and making sure the barge looks like a section of jersey barrier or parked DOT truck from above. Then they can't miss...

#7 M. Murcek - that was the longest landing ever with no boost back burn and a total experiment. Get your facts straight on that before dissing it. It was 1300+ miles out at sea. Previous longest one was 730 some miles. There were 4 separate orbit burns to radically different orbits for some very very strange DARPA, DOD, Taiwanese and other sats. The payload weight was very very low. The Air Force controlled the whole game plan. They wanted some data they could only get with this strange launch. What the real purpose(s) of it are the Air Force's to know.

#8 If you want to continue dinging Musk try the latest failure of an Oxygen Impleller on the Starship's prototype Raptor Engine. It will delay the test launches of the Hopper while they redesign the blade. 3 weeks to model, redesign and build a new blade and 3 weeks to test again. Starship is the one that will eventually take 100 passengers to Mars.
