OK bit early before launch (1816 GMT) but I'm enjoying listening to the music they're playing on the stream.

Fuel? Check.

Blasters? Check.

Mouse food? Check.

Amazing launch but very clever the way they re entry feed cut off when it started spinning.. only for a splashdown. I suppose at least that way there is no bad publicity

Thanks for the link again @masterluke. Missed it live...again, but was able to watch it thanks to the link.

 

Bummer about the first stage landing but given how complex a deal it is I think they can be forgiven. I love the telemetry showing the speed and the commentary that goes with it. 1.7m lbs of thrust! Compare that to the 747 at 179,000 lbs of thrust.

Thanks for the extra links about the graceful booster “crash”. The second link done by Scott Manley - sit down man and stop moving the camera!  I thought he was going into a spin himself.
