BREXIT built on deceit delivered by liars

That is just mind boggling, from the take off, following it into space (I still donīt know how that is done) and then to park the darned thing not only the right way up, but dead on the spot with out any reversing backwards and forwards After all he is still only a learner at 10 lessons.

Yes Jan Iíve been watching the development of SpaceX, thatís the first time that particular Starship rocket ship design has landed successfully the previous two crashed landed when close to the ground
Theyíve land other model successfully, one even onto a ship at sea.
Incredible technology from a private firm with NASA support.

The film looked a bit 'doctored' to me at the point of landing (and the audio) - but I'm only looking on the phone n possibly I've been reading too many conspiracy theories!
