    Due to the postponed launch time, I got stuck at a job site located about 15 miles further north when she went up. Still got to see it and take a few pics.....

    Using Musk's twitter numbers, the final burn should be happening any time now.

    Also, just read that the middle booster was lost during landing: The middle booster of SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy rocket failed to land on its drone ship

    I don't get it, every one is having fun or joking but, if the goal was to orbit Mars and now you have missed, isn't that a failed mission? If this was a manned mission they'd be in deep doodoo. I don't ever remember NASA sending a probe to Mars and completely missing the planet. They all may have not survived the landing but they all hit the planet.
