A Falcon 9 rocket booster — under the power of a single Merlin 1D engine — descends toward a specially-outfitted ocean landing platform off Florida’s East Coast on Tuesday in a brief video clip released by SpaceX.

The rocket tipped over moments after touching down on the barge, which was parked in the Atlantic Ocean 200 miles east of Jacksonville, Florida. SpaceX says the first stage did not survive the landing.

SpaceX is experimenting with recovering Falcon 9 rocket stages in hopes of reusing the boosters on future missions, an achievement officials say would reduce the cost of space launches.

The Falcon 9 rocket’s upper stage continued into orbit with an unmanned Dragon supply ship hauling up cargo for the crew on the International Space Station.

partly cloudyPartly sunny today the sun popping out now and again but mostly overcast.

I finally figured out the solution to the problem at work it was really kind of stupid I should’ve gotten it earlier.  Learned a bit about the server context which is good thing. But I had to fix the bug in a shitty manner because the developer ahead of me basically went in the wrong direction.

Left work at 1 So I could go to my PRK check-up appointment. It took all of about five minutes she sent me down I tried to read off the chart I got about 2025 mostly 2020. She then looked at my eyes and told me everything was going well I’m to continue taking the pills continue putting the eye-drops in till Thursday and then also the ointment at night. She (the optometrist) says there soon as I stop the Durezol drops my divisional actually get better which is a very good thing.

Arriving home I found that the cat was out and also the UPS man was right across the street so he delivered my package from get FPV. Had fun playing with that and then I went out to mellow mushroom to have dinner.

Dinner at mellow mushroom consisted of 10 hot wings and a Hop Dang Diggity with a little company from RebeccaC. She was looking mighty cute in her short shorts and her very pale skin.  It was almost sick listening to Charlie flirt with her. I guess I’d rather done it.

I then got a call from Brian about going to get the new movie this week, the Hobbit – last in the series, so we headed on out to Movie Stop after I got home and then after playing around with the quad copter for a little bit we watch the movie but was time to go to bed.

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. — The Georgia Department of Transportation confirms there are two fatalities and one injury in a Monday morning wreck that blocked Highway 20 in Lawrenceville.

The crash at Highway 20 and Swanson Road shut down all lanes Monday morning.

From my take, they allow 36 oz on premise “tastings” as usual.  Now they can also give a “gift” of a growler (64oz) for off-premise consumption.  Sounds like you have to take a tour first and then also have only one beer type as a single growler, not multiple smaller growlers or possibly bottled beer.
