Aww.

Also, only three of the drone ship’s four engines are functioning, making station-keeping in the face of such wave action extremely difficult. The rocket will still attempt a soft landing in the water through the storm (producing valuable landing data), but survival is highly unlikely.

Take 3 in 15 minutes. Everything seems pretty smooth today (ignoring the fact that they won't be able to try to land it).

Rocket soft landed in the ocean within 10m of target & nicely vertical! High probability of good droneship landing in non-stormy weather.

Had to watch the rerun, but very cool nonetheless.

It takes successes like this to get to the vertical landing they're looking for, it'll happen soon no doubt, cant wait to see it.

Thanks for getting this thread started, DaFace.

Heads up that there's a scheduled launch tonight at 9:50 pm Central.

Nothing terribly exciting in terms of experiments this time - no legs and no attempt to land the second stage at all - though it's the first time SpaceX has ever delivered two satellites with one launch.

Weather is 70% GO at the moment.

(Countdown is to the webcast - not the launch.)

Next barge landing attempt (and ISS-bound launch) coming up at 4:33pm EST if anyone is interested.

Will this country ever build a craft that doesn't look like 1950's redux?

Just unveil the anti-grav system already for fuck's sake.
