Hey, Life (like rockets) are Tricky! LOL
Roll your eyes please!
The headline today of SpaceX’s launch of Dragon 9 was “SpaceX booster landing test fails…” then it showed the rest when you click on it, “but rocket goes on successfully”.
Launching a rocket into space is risky business indeed, as Elon Musk found out last year when it failed and he tweeted, “Rockets are tricky.”
Things didn’t work out quite as SpaceX had expected per the report. “No cigar” reported Musk. Getting the first section of the rocket which is 14 stories tall back on the landing pad in the Atlantic Ocean is not easy. It landed too hard, so that’s why it was no cigar amigo! Maybe the ocean was not completely still, there were some waves. Who knows? Who can control the ocean? Apparently, not even Elon Musk with all his good intentions!
It worked in previous tests. But like share trading and starting with a demo account, everything works fine until you’re trading with your REAL money!
I say that getting Falcon 9 up to space and to ISS (International Space Station) is an incredible achievement, cigar or not!
Like life, rockets are tricky at best and trying to control something 14 stories tall is something to aim for, but OK if no cigar.
What are your goals for 2015?
Are you aiming for that Cigar?
If you don’t get it, but get something close, please do me a favour and celebrate OK?
Here’s a Cuban cigar to start you drooling! I’m just testing it for you. Just in case… LOL
Hey, Elon, get your own cigar! This is mine!
