    Wish we could have seen the center core land. Seems like they would have a feed from the platform ship as well as on the core - which they explained would probably cut out due to vibration. Wonder if something went wrong there...

    Or even a 2nd ship a mile away filming the core landing.

    Still haven't heard anything about the center core. Seems like they would have updated by now.

    Seeing some tweets saying there was audio of “we lost center core.” Not sure what “lost” means, but I’m guessing it means destroyed.

    Sad, but those other two...

    Unbelievable! Gave me chills when they play Bowie and then showed Starman in his Tesla leaving earth!

    So awesome!

    It was a really emotional event. Exhilarating!

    I love to think about all the kids inspired by watching today. :)
