We're living in the future....

Watched it live today, absolutely amazing stuff. The landing of the two outer booster rockets looked like something from a sci-fi movie, but it's real. The crowd cheering along the way was welcome excitement to the usual bland, dry broadcasts associated with NASA launches. Ten years ago the notion of privatizing space travel seemed farcical to me. Now it's a potentially profitable venture. Big question for SpaceX - when will they or NASA commit to placing humans aboard these rockets?

Yes, while the launch was Sexton's drop goal, the booster landings were the cross-field kick to Keith Earles.

Never had you down as a rugby man Adam.

I'm not sure I'd see myself as a 'Rugby Man' but I can't deny I look like one and enjoy the game like one.

Being Irish and English, having lived in France and having a Welsh name I only need dread Scottish or Italian victories.

Not much to dread.
