Dragon Return - 1/6/2020

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket will launch the 21st Dragon spacecraft mission on its 19th operational cargo delivery flight to the International Space Station. The flight is being conducted under the Commercial Resupply Services contract with NASA.

ASDS is due to an extra long booster stage burn needed to get the second stage to allow for a thermal demonstration after it drops off dragon. The pre-launch NASA briefing explains this in a video posted in this thread.

From SpaceX: Falcon 9 static fire test complete — targeting December 4 launch from Pad 40 in Florida for Dragon’s nineteenth resupply mission to the ISS.
Weather is good for launch day: 90% go. Backup day is 80% go.

Nailed the landing. I streamed both NASA TV and the SpaceX webcast. NASA had about a one minute lag behind SpaceX. Thought NASA had slightly better camera angles and rocket booster sound transmission. Nice pop at ignition and rapid fire cracks when nearing Max Q.
