    Fickle, thy name is SpaceX.
    Obviously, in preparation for ditching drone barge landings altogether in preference to kissing the cold, hard Earth (but oh so softly, of course!), the new drone barge's name is


    Of Course I Still Love You*



    Yeah, yeah. They (these lonely, ungainly barges) never learn, do they?

    The decision on the name itself isn't new. Both names were decided at the same time back in January or so.

    The big question at the moment is what is the third one going to be named? There's another one on its way to the west coast to be ready for the next launch from Vandenberg. Originally OCISLY was going to be that one's name.

    Now that I'm in on this - Banks provides all sorts of good choices!
