    NOTE: Turns out they screwed up and put the same video feed on both of the bottom quad views. I had being wrong in a Smarter Every Day, but obviously I was trying to get this out. Seriously... I will think about this video error for years.

      Yeah, the speed of sound is too slow. You hear the landing burn about a minute AFTER the rockets have landed 😊. That's the part about watching a rocket launch that is so absurd: All that immense power being unleashed, and for a first 15-20 secs (from it press site) it's done in total silence.

        Why do some rockets have a popcorn crackle sound like the FH and Shuttle stack?

          The sound delay is so strange... Imagine how could it be if we had a way to witness the light delay

            Is it just me or when i look on the engines and legs of the falcon heavy is so satisfying... like they are so perfectly alined which makes me wanna make the rocket smaller and bite that part... lmfao what?

                      Очень частая взрывная волна ударяет по " вёдрам " расположенным в нижней части ракеты....

                          I was confused because I read the comments before I watched the full video so those of you who are concerned about not hearing the sonic booms it’s on 6:47

                            What are these distortions around the rocket that can be seen from 3:51 on? Is this an artifact from the video? I can see white "waves" bending around the vehicle here against the blue background.
