Falcon 9 First Stage Return | ORBCOMM Mission - YouTube
You beat me to it, but it's some nice vid. What I found even more impressive is the SpaceX release itself. We won't get any return attempts on AsiaSat missions, but the one after that and the two beyond that are on solid surface landings!
SpaceX Soft Lands Falcon 9 Rocket First Stage | SpaceX
Woohoo! Was waiting for this. A bit hard to tell, but it really does look at though it was a very soft landing in the ocean. Amazing.
Great stuff! Hmmm, I wonder why they aren't going to a land landing sooner? Maybe the dangers of landing a highly combustible vehicle are coming to the fore...
How cool is that?! Can't wait for the land landing!
What is really cool about this is that you not only can make out the landing but can see it as it tips over showing the horizon appearing just before losing signal. Great that it happened to tilt to an angle that allowed that to be seen!
Now for their next feat, defrosting that camera lens
Well, they didn't actually say land landing. They said solid surface, which could be a giant parabolic slide at sea.
I wonder if they will even attach landing legs? They won't need them if they aren't going to make an attempt. It will save some weight.
Weight and cost. I am willing to bet it won't have them since that will mean more profit on those launches.
Probably should put this here too, since it is the "Video" thread. Enjoy the landing from another angle
Someone should release this footage more often because this is so cool! :love:
