    Clip was too short, I wanted to see the dragon.

    Assuming 10 ton payload, they could probably put up enough fuel in eight launches to attempt a moon landing with successful takeoff (other factors aside)

    If its only two tons, probably more like 42 successful launches.

    Thats fairly bad-ass.

    Tiny barge, middle of the ocean, looks like gale force winds ..... the rocket lands

    the way it lands, it doesn't look real.

    I'll buy a Tesla if it means it will keep lights on at Space X.

    Pretty pumped about this and what it means for the commercial viability of space programs.
