Do you think the crs-5 s1 will have grid fins?

Any other surprises?

We haven't seen that core and no one's talking, yet. We're still waiting for confirmation that the barge is finished, but they're pushing it really hard.

FAA docs posted on NSF about the barge radio beacons show if it is used the landing will be offshore of Jacksonville, North 30 49 54, West 78 6 29.

Posted to NSF,

Google just updated their satellite images. This one is the SpaceX facility at SpacePort America. Looks like tanks being stored on what looks like the landing pad. Maybe the diagonal bit left is for the hangar?

SpaceX has invested approximately $2 million in improvements to its launch area at the spaceport and is planning to begin flight testing the Falcon 9R in the spring. The Falcon 9R is a real game changer featuring vertical launch AND vertical landing!
