I loved the differences between the SpaceX and NASA control rooms! NASA had the old familiar large box monitors and equipment while SpaceX had slim large LCD monitors. It looked like my boys had set up for a LAN party in a reception room at the local hotel. Very nice setup and great job SpaceX! I love to see space technology brought up to date (even if the module did have to splash down - it still worked and was very successful).

Pics were awesome.. earlier I used to watch some documentaries on Discovery channel but of late, haven't been watching. These pictures and your story has re-kindled my interest in this. Good work.. good to know its all real!

Not sure but I recall that this spacecraft is "re-useable"...if that is correct, do we have any information on how many times this could be used before it is de-commissioned?

Great for SpaceX and the future of space exploration. I have to admit I haven't followed much of the details of this development...but will now...

Reusable rockets will definitely help us to make space tourism popular. I guess people are bored of visiting places on earth, a day will come when they will start visiting space-station or moon for their holidays.

This is amazing achievement by SpaceX. I am sure commercialization of space related projects will definitely help us to explore the space more.

He's undoubtedly working on it. In fact, SpaceX wants to develop reusable rockets that can fly back to the launch pad after the payload hits orbit.

Quite right. If Elon Musk's so confident of landing the cargo module "in someone's back yard" he could at least land the trunk module in a recycling bin. Now _that's_ something I'd pay money to see on YouTube.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
