Awesome landing video. I loved seeing OCISLY crashing through the waves just before the booster lands dead center.
I know right? That view is so cool. You get to see the moment, at engine relight, when the booster commits to the drone ship landing with the translation maneuver.
And how freaking FAST it is coming up to meet the viewer! :oops:
