SpaceX Made a Pokémon Go Joke During Falcon 9 Rocket Launch Broadcast

SpaceX cracks Pokemon Go Joke during its Takeoff Televisual.

SpaceX has had another Falcon 9 rocket go up into the air and return safe and sound. This is the fifth time that the company has accomplished this daring feat. Indeed, it is a very precarious maneuver that requires the utmost in skills and agility.

This time around there was something special about the televisuals that accompanies the launch. After all, it was the first time SpaceX was launching and landing a rocket in the era of the game known as Pokemon Go.

So Cape Canaveral and the ISS remained constants in the whole mix. Yet there was a funny part in the televisual where the game Pokemon Go got mentioned. 

Just before calling it a day, the broadcast event with its three hosts (two men and a woman) did an about-face from the serious humdrum existence and looked at the lighter side of life for a change.

According to The Verge, a cartoon depiction of the Dragon Capsule appeared on the screen much to the utter surprise of the onlookers seated in their living rooms all across the nation.

This image was surrounded by the Pokemon Go scheme that the players of this fun game are so familiar with. The three hosts pretended they were making swipes at the spacecraft using PokeBalls.

Finally, this sequence came to an end. While some may call this a corny joke, it did make the atmosphere a bit more friendly and also acted as a stress-buster.
