SpaceX manned flight

Some may remember him from some of the Reading meets of years past but my son works for SpaceX and played a significant role in getting the Crew Dragon qualified and ready for launch. It all started with working on the SVX.

Re: SpaceX manned flight

You must be very proud of him.Well done Kid.
I watched the launch yesterday. I was sad they lost the feed just as the first stage was going to land on the autonomous barge "of course I still love you". That's an incredible site to see.

Re: SpaceX manned flight

Tony,

Great job raising a wonderful son. Also, a bit more than half the credit should go to your better half.

From another NY Mech. Eng'r. with an SVX.

He called last night to congratulate me on marrying a rare woman who can think critically and not be easily brainwashed. Apparently he is having a hard time finding one.

Re: SpaceX manned flight

Tony,

Here's hoping he will work on the next capsules going to the moon and Mars. And maybe one of them will have weird side windows.
Better yet, hope he finds that great woman and gives you both grand kids.

He is indeed working on more capsules. And I am hoping for the grandkids!

Makes sense, both SVX and Falcon 9 are spaceships.
