Awesome Flight! Nice job SpaceX!

If it wasn't for NASA's stranglehold on everything space-related, something like this could have been flying decades ago. Who knows where we'd be by now?

Strange that in the world's bastion of free enterprise, a government agency held back any chance of private flight.

Go Elon! Elon, Elon, yeah!

Anyone know what the brown smoke starting at 6.21 is?

That seems rather like, ''The operation was a success, but, the patient died.'' Was there any indication as to the reason for the explosion?
It seems somewhat bizarre, that having landed successfully, that it should then explode.

In the old days of aviation, all of these flights would have had test pilots aboard. Give thanks for Moore's law, which has made near-infinite computing power not just available but disposable.

So where's the explosion at the end?!?! I saw this same footage somewhere else yesterday, and all they showed towards the end was the monitor spraying water towards the rocket, and then they cut away! Does Elon not want us to see that part? Is it too embarrassing for his company to show what happened? NASA, on the other hand, made no bones about showing their failures as well as their successes!!
I'm into amateur rocketry, designing and building both solid fuel and liquid fuel engines over the years.

Amazing!! Really inspiring...and to boot, 12:25 on looks like it was filmed on Tatooine!!!

@Worzel, as it says in the article, “It appears the damage incurred during the landing was too much [to] bear for the spacecraft, [though], causing it to explode on the pad some minutes after coming down to rest.”

Picture a car smashing into some object, coming to a stop, and then (after a couple of minutes) bursting into flame.

What other space company - or space agency - has been able to carry off three full flight tests of this scale, within three months? Truly incredible.

And the explosion happened long after landing. That was a phenomenally successful test and accomplishment.

Elon Musk, never one to take himself too seriously, tweeted:

“RIP SN10, honorable discharge”

Nice except they leak way too much fuel and O2 and note how the fire kept going then a few minutes later the whole thing blew up.
