    It's still going, but now there are blurry/bright white light things zooming by.

    I think it might be falling back to Earth.

    OK. It sounds interesting. I've not had time to watch it yet though.

    Got a chance to watch some of this today. The launch was amazing, and you could see the views from the boosters as they came back to Earth (is this what you may have seen falling, Alpha?).

    But in the process of finding videos of it on YouTube, I came across some videos by a guy called "Jake the Asshole", and believe me, the name is accurate. He believes the whole thing is fake and castigates us all for believing it, or "buying it" in his words. Now he is entitled to his view, and I can't 100% prove it's real, but neither can he prove it's fake. And his arguments are laughable.

    One of his arguments is that, in the particular video, there are no continents in view, and that we are being asked to believe that "all the continents are on the other side". But he is assuming that the field of view shows a whole half of the Earth, and that the other half is not visible, whereas it is probably nearer only about 20% that is visible (or even less) and 80% that is not visible, as the car was only a few hundred miles up at that time. Plus, in other videos, including some that he showed, you could clearly see continents in them.

    He also points to the bottom and says "you can't see Antarctica, they missed it out". But again, you can't see it because, as stated above, you are not seeing a whole half of the Earth, only a small fraction, so it's perfectly reasonable for Antarctica not to be visible. And in any event, south is not always at the bottom in space!

    His stuff is full of other nonsense, which I won't recount here, but whilst he exhorts us to at least accept that it "might" be fake, he can't accept that it "might" be real.

    Yeah, theres alsorts of weirdo's posting stuff like that on Youtube.

    As for the white bits, it must have been the thrusters. by the time i started watching the feed it was on a loop as the camera batteries apparently only lasted four hours.

    But still, it was a great view.

    Yes, I did wonder about the white bits coming off, not sure what that was. But yes, it was great and very unusual and refreshing.
