February 6, 2018: SpaceX Falcon Heavy Launch

Tilden students gathered to watch and celebrate the test launch of SpaceX‘s Falcon Heavy rocket.

We watched with bated breath as the engine ignited, joined the countdown, cheered at liftoff, watched the two side boosters’ balletic landing with awe–and giggled at Starman.

We hope the 5th graders’ rockets launch so successfully!
