NASA and SpaceX Post Falcon 9 Launch Press Conference Video

After a nearly flawless launch of Falcon 9 and recovery of the Dragon spacecraft, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk was almost speechless during the first part of the press conference saying “he was in semi shock” at how well the launch went. Musk said he was extremely thankful to NASA for helping get SpaceX to this point and that SpaceX had built upon decades of NASA work. However SpaceX today accomplished something no private company has ever done before and only three nations had, he launched and recovered a spacecraft successfully. Musk said if astronauts had been aboard they would have had a gentle ride to space and returned safely experiencing only about 4G’s comparable to a roller coaster ride.
