    Wow, that is a lot! I think I saw two re-lights of the second stage. Would that be a first for SpaceX?

    And it ends with a “Propulsive Passivation”. Had never heard that before, so the Interwebs to the rescue:

    I’d love to make this launch.
    How crammed up is the supercharger network around Falcon Heavy launches?

    Honestly I thought this year would be worse with so many 3’s out now, but we had less people at chargers this year than last year. Port orange was about 16 cars deep last year on our way out. This year we only had to wait 5 mins an got a charger.

    not bad if you can come through Orlando...
    the 14 stall charger is east side of downtown and closest to space coast...
    these are your options in Orlando...
