Embedded below the fold. The second part is not yet up. This segment was a discussion of the Falcon Heavy launch yesterday. The second part, which I shall add when John makes it live, was a discussion of the big space projects of NASA and Russian, and a comparison of both with Falcon Heavy. The comparison is as always enlightening.
UPDATE: Second part now added!
