As Commander Shaw said when Stingray was about to launch... "anything can happen in the next half hour". Although it will be longer than that. 

And as Jeff Tracy said in Thunderbirds when Thunderbird 3 was about to launch... "Launch Thunderbird 3!"

Works for Thunderbird 2 as well.

😄 I love the way it landed leaning over. In fact, impresive control system if it can even land it gently on its bum when one of the landing legs fails to depoly.

Yikes!!!!  I guess a live crew would have to get out quickly and run faster than Forest Gump.  Oh, well, testing and development will continue.

Yep, there was a small fire at the base after landing. Thus the eventual big bang. no live crews, all automated cameras. Even the water spray after landing was automated.

Yep,  a success this one, great launch, perfect belly flop, all engines functioning apart from two deliberately shut down before landing, and a nice gentle landing. I suspect the damage was caused because it wasn't on all of its landing legs.

Not sure what they have planned for the next one. Rapid progress though, impressive. Meanwhile... Blue Origin are as slow as a snail.
