    The added sound effects around 14:40ish made that slow-motion shot pay off in my mind. Kudos guys!

  2. Nova Valentis

    stunningly beautiful! If someone uses this footage for an epic music video it’d be a hit!

    I would LOVE someone to try and build an R/c version of this.

  16. Alex Mullins

    Dude!!!!! That timelapse at the end turned out AMAZING!!!! great job!

  17. Inimbrium

    17:30 one day, the Starship will be docked to the ISS, not just gazing up from the landing pad. And one day soon.

  18. Derek

    Man, the crackeling roar of rocket engines will never bore me

    One of the best things I have ever seen here: 13:21

  28. William Korb

    So much detail that I missed on previous, lower quality videos! Thanks Tim, Ryan, & Maryliz! This is yet more fantastic work on your part! Wow. Just wow.

  29. SyNc Life!

    Jesus… this is art. SpaceX would probably pay for that footage just because of it’s astonishing quality! Incredible piece of work you’ve done there Tim.

  30. Matej Marković

    16:22 this is where I got chills

  31. Ewan Corbett

    11:40 you can see the heat distortion from the engines

  44. Hydrolox Aerospace

    1:36 (Tim Dodd screaming) It’s okay! I did the SAME THING, even that hoppy-jumpy dance thing. It was a beautiful flight.

  54. Jonathan Morton

    14:16 When your buddy taps your beer with his and Rapid Unscheduled Beerplosion occurs

  55. George Foot

    “Wait a sec, I don’t remember my exhaust being this green on the way up… Oh.”

  56. subliminalvibes

    This is amazing!!
    Had to recalibrate my brain to get used to you removing the 8 second delay in the sound… 😎👍

  57. Something Seems Off

    As a pyrotechnic I just want to say that the was one very satisfying explosion!

  58. Klaus Wagner

    love the moment it cracks and looses its rigidness / hull wobbling at 14:17

  59. daniel stine

    14:25 full stop this is the most fantastic thing I’ve ever seen. Wow.

  60. Lectric Dolphin

    15:50 that chunk of debris flying almost perfectly along the horizon showing no signs of ever slowing down 😦

  61. Hean visal seyhak

    Can imagine the feeling of the starhopper and Sn9 have just saw and withness thier friend dead 😔

  62. Ssenyonga Gadhaf

    I love and respect your work man. It means alot.

  63. Astronacademy

    I love that you synced the sound up with the video!! It’s so much less trippy!

  64. jonny96

    Outstanding footage! Such an exciting time for space flight, keep it up Tim! 🚀

  65. Mark McCombs

    15:51 I would love to know the velocity of the debris that shot across the field of view. Incredible!!

  66. 8Flux8

    1:15 listen to all those sonic booms…ahhh…😊

  67. Michael Wolfe

    10:16 reminds me of Gandalf and the Balrog falling through the Mines of Moria

  68. smallstars

    Dear SN8, you will live on forever in the history books. Thank you for setting the Starship program up for success in such a spectacular fashion.
    Tim, thank YOU for inspiring everyone, and working so hard; doing what you do so well.

  69. Mattedge704 V

    I never knew silence could be so beautiful. (After MECO)

  70. The Random Tube

    The COPV’s are like “Yeah, I’m outta here!”

  71. Jeffrey Reckahn

    Incredible achievement by SpaceX. I have watched this a hundred times from multiple angles, and I’m still amazed

  72. Paul Bearly

    Incredible work there! Absolutely brilliant camerawork and editing!

  73. No Fullname

    10:30 Does the tip of the nose cone follow a perfectly straight line throughout that entire flip maneuver?! Good grief!

  74. adam berry

    Found the best song for SpaceX: To The Moon by Gain Altitude, great outro!

  75. Darthmoll12 Gaming

    this was truly a historic moment! Somewhere on mars there will be a museum and the SN8 nosecone will be in it!

  76. KM

    Best footage ever. Well done, Tim. loved that explosion at 14:10 and the composition shot is epic!

  77. CRISPR

    just great, thank you so much for this! The “Wreckage with ISS Flyover” scene is so beautifully bizarre. I love it

  78. Arno De Pauw

    I just cant get over how good the tracking and audio are!

  79. BLUEFLAME 351

    Watched it live from my bed in the UK intending to go to sleep afterwards – didn’t really work since I was smiling for the next half hour…

  80. Jsmith

    10:16 is such an awesome perspective.

  81. 6612770PLUS

    Q: What is the reason for that ‘crackling sound effect’, I presume is produced by the engine exhaust?

  82. Fox On

    Amazing! Any thoughts on releasing that last scene as a poster? So much history in one image

  83. Uche Oji

    Any excuse to watch this again, and I’m on it! 🤯😁😄

  84. Ed Ore

    14:17 slow-motion , the LOX tank section peels open like Pillsbury dough roll. That whole video was INCREDIBLE! Thank you Tim.😊

  85. B R Pers1l

    Every time I watch those landing burns after the bellyflop to tail down, there’s always a little spark of hope that it will land this time

  86. Erik Bongers

    What I hadn’t noticed before: the flaps/wings are really working hard to stabilize the freefall.

  87. Picarus

    Incredible coverage of the test, well done Tim and team!

  88. Maverick

    Amazing work! Thanks for everything you bring to the community!

  89. iera

    10:30 What even is this shot bro!? WOW. And the sound when it relights, aldafsldlsakdjdsajf

  90. Galaxmul

    10:16 My favorite part! SN8 drops silent like a stone and then surprisingly late (my heart stops ;D) SN8 flips for landing…so great!!

  91. streglof

    Wait so that cloud it was falling through was from it’s own liftoff…

  92. Brice-A.

    17:19 – Wreckage with ISS Flyover – Cherry on the cake, beautiful!

  93. DJ Delorie

    10:17 – “I bet you’re wondering how I got in this predicament. My story started six minutes ago…”

  94. Ryukachoo

    Interesting visual experiment in “if sound traveled at light speed” through the magic of editing

  95. Peter Dallas

    This may be the one video I watch more times than the falcon heavy test flight

  96. Rinoa's Auspicious Travai

    That was a nice view of the landing.

  97. What about it!?

    What a time to be alive! Thank you for bringing us these pictures! 😍

  98. Nye James

    One of the best RUD shots of SN8! Surprisingly quiet explosion …

  99. MuitoDaora

    17:19 MIB inspecting the remains of a crashed spaceship.
