Absolutely, that was my favourite part

Watch this with headphones on and the volume up.. The noise of the rocket is something else....Then the sonic booms from the booster rockets is intense!

The thing that stands out most for me, is the verbosity of these American utubers

Well at least that was some sound.
The claimed 'Rocket Man' booming out of the roadsters radio is a total fabrication as even if the radio was playing, no sound would be coming out, as sound waves cannot travel through a vacuum.
More fake news?

Awesome.

This is a really cool move by Elon Musk, I wonder what is next for the Space X odyssey

Almost 3 miles away for the launch and naround 5 miles away for the booster landing...

No need to be snarky, I was merely pointing out the BS flowing freely whenever Musk is involved.
