you've really made the grade

Yesterday was the launch of SpaceX's Falcon Heavy and it was awesome. I planned my entire afternoon around it and was very worried I'd go in to labor and miss it. I was so excited that when I texted C "Here we go!" I didn't think he may have thought I was talking about going into labor.  Ooops. 

If you haven't done so, watch the launch in its entirety. The video below should start right before the launch, if not skip ahead to about minute 18.

Also, you can watch Starman on his way to Mars the asteroid belt (because they overshot him and the car) here

Apparently the center core overshot the landing ship by a football field, was obliterated on impact, and took out two engines on the drone ship because the core ran out of propellant to slow it down (?), but don't quote me on that because I understand less than 1% of this science stuff.
