Watching this super slow-mo montage of rocket launches is amazingly relaxing

Rockets. Massive, Falcon 9 rockets, blasting off. In slow motion. 

It's our new jam. Our essential 'kill 80 seconds with something that's going to cheer you up and chill you out' pick.

It tells you nothing of the importance of SpaceX's mission to build reusable rockets, nor of Elon Musk's dream of populating Mars with humans and mining asteroids. It's just a beautiful, fire-filled video that'll make you go "Phwor, great rockets". 

So what the hell are you waiting for?
