    Just moments ago, an attempted Astra launch from Kodiak Island, Alaska. This is just about the wildest launch I’ve ever seen, because not many rockets just take off laterally, literally stroll out of an open gate, and then at some point decide to start gaining altitude before falling apart somewhere around max Q.

    Dunno how much of the eventual near-success was dumb luck and how much was resilient on-board self-correcting systems, but either way…that was a hell of a show. For about two minutes.
