    I had been hoping for a chance to see a SpaceX launch live for a long time and last night (really early this morning), I got that chance. I drove over two hours each way just to see this minutes long event and it was completely worth it. I even had the bonus of seeing the landing as well. This is a combination of 2 different exposures of about three minutes each. Hopefully, this is just the beginning of a new era in space exploration.
