RockBolt - 2015-06-06 A guy found a chunk of a Falcon 9 rocket fairing on the beach on the Bahamas with a GoPro stuck to it and mailed it back to SpaceX
(the article says its from the crashed landing attempt but its a fairing from one of their satellite launches)
Gmork - 2015-06-06 Wanted the entire experience. How did it survive re-entry? Did it get far enough outside for re-entry to even occur?
infinite zest - 2015-06-06 Yeah.. ever since I was a kid I wanted to see POV videos of things falling from high places, like out of an airplane, etc.. and I guess my solution would've been taking a camcorder and making it so it would face down with enough protection that it wouldn't break when it hit the ground.. 12 year old physics/logic. Now that I can actually see it though it's not as cool as it was in my head.
RockBolt - 2015-06-06 They haven't given many details about this yet, but the fairing generally comes off at about 3 - 4 minutes after liftoff, really as soon as possible that they are out of the dense atmosphere, so its not quite at orbital altitude or velocity yet.
Nominal - 2015-06-06 What's with all the lens flare? Did JJ Abrams direct this?
dairyqueenlatifah - 2015-06-07 Yeah man you can totally tell this is cgi look at all those out of place pixels and all that aliasing all over the satellite and the sun is just a lens flare. I bet if you think this is real you think the moon landing really happened too.
