Okay, "recovered" (ejected then deployed parachutes, to be picked up in the ocean by a crew later), but didn't make it up into orbit. Making it into orbit is the key for what makes this rocket different than anything in the past.
Upon further looking, the part of the Falcon9 that came back didn't make it into orbit, either. But delivering a payload of 10 satellites into orbit and making it back in one piece is still astounding for one rocket to do. Splitting hairs at this point...
Yes, and if you read about that, you'd see some of Blue Origin's personnel came from that project. So Bezos only just did the same thing his people were capable of 20 years ago.
Musk's SpaceX just put a rocket into orbit, delivered a payload, and brought it back down safely. That's never been done before. That's an order of magnitude more difficult than what we've been discussing. This is the biggest advancement in space flight since the first shuttle landed.
We do not know why so few cardiac patients report NDE after CPR, although age plays a part. With a purely physiological explanation such as cerebral anoxia for the experience, most patients who have been clinically dead should report one.
How does that refute GP or even show anything of substantial value to the debate of whether or not there's scientific evidence for a creator? Go ahead, twist the findings of that study to say what you want them to. Do it for all to see.
It can take more energy/cost/etc to ship something inefficiently within your local state/county/etc than to get it shipped efficiently from China.
Sorry, sir but I'm gonna have to issue you a .
