    Perfect launch

    A couple thermal issues, one environmental and the other propellant heaters in one thruster quad, but both are now good.

    5 Crew Dragons: Endeavour (Dragon C206), Resilience (Dragon C207), and three more to be named.

    3 Cargo Dragons: the first flies December 2 for CRS-21.

    During a presser NASA's Kathy Lueders, head of Commercial Crew, said during this mission Crew Dragon will not only serve as a lifeboat but also as a habitation module.

    Take a break, use the vehicle's bathroom, sleep, whatever. Given the screens run on Chromium I wouldn't be surprised if some of Tesla's embedded video games are in there.
