Fun recent interview with Musk. I like how he has began to refer to the Mars round-trip reusability with more certainty now, and more confidence that he can bring the price down dramatically. In previous interviews, he was cautious even when talking about LEO reusability. I can't wait for that Falcon Heavy-Grasshoper hybrid he could be having in mind.
I noticed this too. Also since the last post the mission was a success...so congrats to all involved.

Still pretty anxious about the SLS, a multi-tiered space race is really heating up. The video from the SLS tests remind me of the footage from Apollo's early days.
