Found this, the center section missed it's mark and hit the ocean at 300mph

Ker SPLASH!

OOPS!!!

Good thing it missed the boat. That'd be a heck of an insurance claim.

Amazing achievement!

The landing of the boosters was really a sci-fi becoming reality...

Love it. Fantastic for all humanity. Keep it going. Rockets are just plain awesome!
The roadster launch is wicked cool.

Watched the live stream on SpaceX' YouTube channel. Truly amazing.

 

The "DON'T PANIC!" on the display made me cheer.

Douglas would have loved it...

Is it just me, or does it now just show the thing in real time in space and no longer has the launch footage? :(
