    Way to go! Absolutely perfect launch, can’t wait to share the video with my students tomorrow! Am very impressed with how quickly Falcon transitions from flight to function in space1 Wow! ” From ground to work in ten minutes or less” – sounds like a great slogan!

    Godspeed Discovr!
    God Bless America!
