    It's apparently too cold (-10 to -30 celsius estimated) to sustain life though.
    Yes, currently.

    SpaceX launch of the first commercial Falcon Heavy rocket is in about 8 hours from now. I really hope all three boosters stick the landing this time.

    I almost saw the launch on Sunday before it was pushed back.

    Looks like the center core of the Heavy fell into the sea due to choppy sea...

    Why did it take so long for them to drag it in?

    It always takes a while, but the Heavy covers a larger distance so the landing on the ship happens waaay further from the shore than usual.

    Doesn't this shot kinda blow your mind when you look at the sky as a flat thing?

    I wish I knew why they literally couldn't wait 10 minutes until the weather cleared, which they indicated it would have. I'm sure there's a good reason that has to do with math and physics; I just don't get it.

    Humidity in the air creates more friction around the craft, thus more heat, thus more dangerous.

    Simply put, they have to launch within seconds inside an extremely narrow window to be on the proper trajectory to reach the International Space Station. Ten minutes late would make a colossal difference, meaning that if they launched using set parameters, the Station would be nowhere near their position once they reach orbit.
