....6 minutes after take off, confirmed they are OK to land in Saragosa, Spain just in case 2 engines fail...

Tank separation footage good, never seen that before.

Wow, that was a great lift-off.
Was getting a bit depressed there when they were saying it was a NO with the range issue as waited so long for it, (safety comes first of course), but great to see it successfully into orbit

One lucky dude! Very jealous

@ Shadow
I think that was just some insulation foam that comes off the external tank during take off. No doubt the guys at NASA will be looking very closely at the rocketcam footage and all their other video footage analysing everything and should find out soon what it was for definite.

I remember seeing Challenger on Newsround after coming home from school like it was yesterday.



PS I don't think anyone was interested, but Boeing won the tanker competition. Boo.
