Sounds like Musk expected this to fail, since they had much less fuel to land with, having to use all their margins to get a satellite to Geo. The returning first stage used three engines to land this time, three times the deceleration since it was coming in for a much faster "hover-slam". Unreal! This type of flight of comsats sent to GTO will be their money maker for the immediate future, and since it's the most difficult type of landing it was really important to get working even it is on fumes! Got even closer to the center of the bulls-eye than last time too. Great news. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
