    This is so cool! Makes me proud that an American company (like Tesla) is doing something this big and monumental.

    I saw it live, but too cloudy for good pix. Anyone coming out this way to see future ones, check in with me as 40 pct of the neighborhood is NASA engineers who might have special viewing passes.
