Another good one. This had both the first and second stage tracking/telemetry data for the first time.

30 minute coast phase. From here, there is little possibility of failure.

And...successful deployment.

They are showing a live shot of the SpaceX control room. Things are so routine now that it seems there are half the number of people at terminals that there used to be and there are no employees outside the room cheering it on like there used to be.
