Anticipation!

 

Did it or did it not.  Hmmmm.  Lots of smoke ... fire ... no big boom though.

Thinking a hard landing due to lack of callouts.

Seems like the camera always "freezes" when the landing doesn't go so well. :/

yep...I think hard landing as well. :( It was upright ... dunno if it stayed that way though.

"Appears we lost the vehicle" :(

 

Regarding stage 1

 

Well ... data!!!  At the rest of the mission appears to be going smoothly.

Beautiful shot of the ABS deploying.  Hopefully they can release a high-res version of this. :)

 

Cool deal...another successful launch/deployment by SpaceX!

Looks like thrust was low on 1 of 3 landing engines. High g landings v sensitive to all engines operating at max.
