This will also be the next Falcon 9 v1.1 to attempt landing the first stage after main engine cut-off (MECO) and stage separation. This is a major step towards manufacturing a reusable launcher, which will drastically lower launch costs.
such a mantra it'd be great, for 1st times, to increase payload mass up to reasonable numbers + meet the dates to launch w/ no terrific plague of delays.

That was really amazing to watch the capture. I was wondering how that was done. Is there another capture procedure video that shows a more secure connection between Space X and the space station ? How do they exchange cargo.

Space Exploration Technologies’ (SpaceX) President and Chief Executive Officer Gwynne Shotwell answered the question that is on many a space enthusiasts minds this week – what happened in terms of the company’s efforts to recover the first stage of the Falcon 9 v1.1 booster that launched on Friday April 18 at 3:25 p.m. EDT (1825 GMT).
Johnson: Have you found it yet?
Shotwell: “Yes, we’ve found it.”
Johnson: Can you tell us what you found?
Shotwell: Not at this time, I haven’t seen all the photos. We’ve seen parts (laughs)!”
Johnson: Is there going to be video or photos released?
Shotwell: “I think we have some video. We didn’t have any real-time telemetry and video, so I haven’t seen it yet, I haven’t been back in the office.”
