    I thought ut was suppoaed to take 4 or 5 years after a failure to get back to flight!
    Still wondering where the lost dragon capsule ended up and what shape it is in.

    Good luck Space X.

    But pssst… Elon…. shush for a while.

    We want the back to flight to go well at launch. Landing would be a bonus. However, if this next launch goes poorly ULA and the SLS gang will hang you for Hubris.

    We’re still rooting for you, though. Good luck Falcon 9 team.
