Still--some of his stuff is pretty amazing and a jump in advancing space technology + capability.
Very cool to see in person - a thrill and inspirational even for many people - what was Sci Fi, becomes reality in the real world.


Vertical rocket landings from 10 kilometer > 10 meter accuracy in 4 years---pretty fancy advance --not bad.

Now that the USAF spinoff, the Space Force, has been created... maybe some of the lesser secrets of our USAF space program will become more mainstream. I was involved in the spy plane and stealth programs, and I flew 3 orbits in one of the X-37 prototypes. I was sad to see the X-37B replace those manned space missions with unmanned drones.
