    To put this into perspective, NASA's new rocket(ready in 2019?) which is bigger than the Falcon Heavy,will cost $1bn every launch,compare that to $90m for Musk's rocket.
    I had my doubts about SpaceX, but they really delivered on this one, very well done!!!
    I'm still amazed with the accuracy.....astonishing ....pity the third booster did not make it .....an expensive lose of fuel!

    Soyuz МС-10 launched today to ISS, crashed shortly after launch.
    Emergency rescue shooting out system has saved the crew (one our, one US guy) in a capsule, landed safely, established radioconnection, helicopters run there.

    It's second time when emergency rescue shooting out system worked - first time yet in USSR, 1983, with Soyuz T-10

    Shame the booster rockets did not work, but Thank God the emergency system and training all worked.

    PS. Do you think the Americans can make a blockbuster film about a 90 second journey into space?

    They can. But both cosmonauts, our and their, will be in шапки-ушанки. Our in grey one, American in rose one.

    90 seconds is the average attention span of most Americans. Shouldn't be a problem.

    I suppose it could be produced as a slow motion film?

    On this trip to the ISS a spacewalk was to be done in order to investigate where the mysterious drilled out hole came from (Russia said, get this, we did it on purpose to activate the emergency system sirens to get a free ride back home to earth! NASA for it's part said the hole was not a manufacturing defect but would need to be examined to determine the cause, hence the scheduled Oct/Nov spacewalk). So, the timing of this crash could be suspect (conspiracy theory)--Wally, get on this case right away!
    I am fascinated by Russia, this country with frigid weather, hard souls, and hot girls!
