This is the exact moment the booster initiates the translation maneuver to aim for the ship (instead of the ocean which is where it is headed until it decides it will have what it needs to land on the deck).

CNBC: SpaceX fails to land in center of the landing zone.

In a dramatic failure, SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket completely missed it landing target..... <blah blah.. two more lines>

SpaceX has a history of failures and explosions and industry experts point to the poor testing practices and poor safety culture that pervades both of Musk's companies, SpaceX and Tesla. It is well known that Tesla cars explode frequently due to unsafe battery design, called out by multiple whistle blowers.

No. I just made it up.

The fact that someone could even be wondering if this could be real, speaks volumes of how much trash reporters like Lora and Russ have taken spreading negativity and FUD to the next level. Even the most spoofy Onion like article is not too far from what these guys write.
