    Oh ignorance, I love you.

    Wait, people last page were saying that the engines have never been tested before. But didn't SpaceX get a capsule into orbit a few months ago?

    They meant those specific engines on the rocket right now.

    Read back a page, they said it was some problem with a limit being incorrectly set, so the computer systems automatically aborted the launch.

    From the comments section of that video;
    I read somewhere the earth is* slowing down,it's spin,on it's axis! Could this rocket be tested facing westward ,when testing,n could it help speed the earth back to its normal rotational spin!

    Reissner–Nordström black holes are craaazy. They have two event horizons and once you've fallen through both, you can stop your rocket before you get to the singularity, aim yourself, and travel to any one of countably infinitely many other universes. :O
