The car is attached as shown in the "Falcon Heavy Animation" video on SpaceX channel. But unlike it is shown in the animation, the car remains attached to the cradle and the booster. There is no release mechanism. The cameras are mounted to the cradle, and powered from the rocket. In the live stream, in addition to the three camera angles showing the car, there were additional views from the cameras looking at the rocket engine, and from inside of the liquid oxygen tank.

The trailing booster does everything exactly like the leading one, but with a two second delay. When the boosters are at a higher altitude and travel with supersonic speed, two seconds means that the trailing booster is half a mile behind. But just before the touchdown they are moving very slowly -- the two second difference now becomes barely visible. If you look at the dust on the landing pad, you can still see that the closer to the camera booster whips the dust on the ground two seconds before the one in the background. There is an amateur video that shows the landing exceptionally clearly. Google: _"SpaceX Falcon Heavy Landing + Sonic Boom!"_ It is shot by somebody from the vicinity of the ULA launchpad -- the main competitors of SpaceX. It is claimed that there were approximately half a million of spectators at the Falcon Heavy launch (100,000 tourists + residents). Office of Tourism publishes this kind of statistics. They also say that the last launch of Space Shuttle brought half a million of just the tourists to the coast. They hope that the resumption of the manned flights will get people excited again to visit Florida and see the launches.

Soundmario they don’t come down simultaneously, one is much lower than the other but when the landing burns start they both slow to roughly the same speed, look at the two cameras on the bottom left and you’ll see the side booster well below the other.

I think I have now watched this 20-30 times. Stunning advancement of reusability which spacex were already the only current player on the launch market. Finally a heavy lift vehicle with reusable first stage . Indeed they could have gone the safe route and used 2 new boosters but went for 2 previously flown ones. I actually liked the way the whole thing was broadcast and the spacex crew cheering on their latest quantum leap success. I only have one criticism which is that the two presenters white washed the fact that the centre core was destroyed, and I think that gives material to the flat earhters and those who want to debunk this as propaganda. I just wish I had seen it live. I'll be watching the BFR launch when it comes into being, hopefully Elon will one-up himself and launch a Tesla truck into solar orbit this time..

The total cost of the actual 30-year service life of the shuttle program through 2011, adjusted for inflation, was $196 billion. The exact breakdown into non-recurring and recurring costs is not available, but, according to NASA, the average cost to launch a Space Shuttle as of 2011 was about $450 million per mission. JUST THINK OF ALL THE STARVING CHILDREN YOU COULD HAVE FED WITH THIS WASTE OF MONEY.

To Fred Cink. I mean Fink. I have fed a few and some adults too throughout my life! Wrong answer. You are insensitive to people. My computer didn't cost millions and billions. You have to have a car to work and get food dumb dumb. Sell my house and I'll be homeless. I have talked to many depressed people and have given them hope for your information. You have got to be the most senseless Liberal! You have stars in your eyes like NASA. Mars is half the size of Earth and it has a canyon that 2000 miles. That makes 2000 mi. of wasted space making it smaller, plus it's to far away. I like Elon Musk but he needs to keep fixing this Earth since he has a brilliant mind.

I am flying to my fate
into the depth of the space
with a heavy burden, fly away
like a falcon with his prey
Destined to fly, to reach to mars
In the shoulders of giants
I'm standing to find
that dreams don't die
dreams won't die
Rushing into the unknown
a red roadster to a red dot goes
But In the void, there still glows
the dreams of the Blues grows
Destined to fly, to reach to mars
In the shoulders of giants
I'm standing to find
that dreams don't die
dreams won't die

On that day, I felt my heart exploding inside my chest. Delay over delay rushed my blood pressure higher each hour.
Too strong winds in the upper atmosphere were endangering the test flight. I wasn't believing anymore in a sccessful flight.
But then, 20 minutes before the launch window was about close, the rocket lifted. And what a lift it was.
I had to remind myself to breathe meanwhile watching it rise majestically into the skies. The booster separation, fairing separation and booster landing drove me into disbelief.
As an ongoing engineer I know how impossible it is, to achieve that in actual practice.
Thank you Elon, for this exciting new era!
See you again when it's time to test the Big Falcon Rocket

To Elon Musk,
I was thinking how we could keep the video going on board the two ships used for landing at sea.
A cable floating on the surface of the ocean to a small boat say roughly a 50 footer trailing the landing barge by as an estimate 1000 feet from the ship with antennae on board for video and sound. After a successful landing it's simply winched in the the barge and is attached by a couple of steel lines to trail the barge when the tugboats show up to bring her into port.
Just a thought and it might save you having to replace the antennae for the next flight.
Hope this idea doesn't sound too wacky.

I was still in diapers when Gangarin made history and Shepard America's 1st manned flight launched, and still too young to really feel the excitement of Apollo 11 in '69 (9 years old). I felt chills of excitement when I watched the Columbia shuttle launch like a rocket and then make an airplane-like landing from orbit in 1981. Watching the Falcon-H boosters land side-by-side brought that thrill back, even with the loss of the center core. All 5 feats are historic moments and all happened during my lifetime. Small wonder I love aerospace so much. Gonna go watch that all-too-silly 'Reluctant Astronaut' again now: https://youtu.be/iGTlMazQFHI
