So, who has got a guess on how today's launch goes.

My bet launch goes ok. Landing 2 boosters and the third doesn't stick the landing. The two returning to the cape land safe, the one going to the barge doesn't survive touchdown.

Looking forward to it, I'll wager it blows up but the Roadster safely lands back on the pad with a parachute.

Right?!?!?! Me too! I was out of my chair cheering at the top of my lungs. My neighbors must think I am nuts.

That view of the two boosters landing side by side was the most amazing thing I have ever seen. Like something out of a sci fi movie.

Any word yet on the central core? I've got money riding on this. Money I am happy to loose if the core stuck the landing.

I jumped up out of my chair going "YES!!! YES!!!" when the boosters landed.

Apparently the core has a nasty habit of punching a hole in the drone ship... I'm surprised we haven't heard anything yet, which doesn't bode well.
