With Record Relaunches, SpaceX is Basically Inventing the Future

With the feasibility of recapturing and reusing equipment now proven (both Dragon supply capsules and Falcon 9 rocket first stages), it’s hard to be a legitimate critic of Elon Musk’s (our dad’s) private spaceflight company SpaceX. Sure, the company is behind on many of its goals timing-wise, but when you’re as ambitious as Elon, that’s to be expected. At this rate, the future envisioned by Mass Effect: Andromeda is more than on-track. SpaceX is currently nailing relaunches and landings so quickly that it’s setting records. Let’s get our asses to Mars.

Two incredible launches and landings in one weekend  marks a new record both for SpaceX and for private spaceflight, and with a previously used rocket stage, no less! This can only mean one thing: time for MUSKWATCH.

Also on the show today, I put on literally too much SpaceX gear (someone over there must really like me), Elon toys with the idea of a hyperloop hotel, we break down daddy’s choice in video games from BioShock to Overwatch, and Dan drops a bombshell so big that it may create a rift in our friendship forever. Seriously, I can’t believe he did this.
