Well I suspect the launch is at those times and the sea landing a bit later but its hard to cram a lot of info into a title line :wink: :twisted: anyway I wish them luck as if successful this could bring down the price of space access even more than SpaceX already has.

It'll be pretty cool if they can stick the landing.

Launch cost reductions are debatable. It will depend on how often they can retrieve the booster in reusable condition and how much refurbishment costs.

Those SpaceX guys are such a tease. I had NASA TV fired up on the big screen and the kids up, dressed, fed and ready to go and... aborted at T-2:00.
