It costs payload to recover the boost vehicle. Especially to bring it back to launch site rather than a barge. Then again, the barge costs money. SpaceX has done a fantastic job of advancing the technology. The space race was us vs Russia. We launched the Saturn5 on 5 huge engines. The Russians tried to light 30 engines on their first stage with horrible results.

Nicely done - It's good to have foreground items to give the sense of scale.

Thank you, SCM. Pardon my ignorance, but is that speed sufficient for streaming movies?

LoveTheView, I have had Charter Cable since 2001 and their performance and reliability cannot be beat! My current package provides 350Mbits down and 25Mbits up for a very reasonable price. The best part is that I very rarely have any problems with my service.

Doohickey, where did you work? Showed my husband our note and he said he did the same thing at JPL. We both worked there for 30 years. And NorthShoreAllen I have a bunch of patches and worked for a scientist that went on two shuttles, the first one being STS117. I have a picture he sent me with autographs of all of them on it.

Hello All -
We are considering wifi at home in Crestline. Can I ask what others are using (cable, phone) and how reliable it is? I see postings on this forum from time to time, but it all seems to be BigBear.
Thanks!

Thanks for the link, but SB County Fire District has its own rules and does not always follow USFS.
