I was watching the lift off on CNN and 15 seconds to launch, they suddenly switched to it high up and accelerating. For some reason they skipped the launch.They better play that video to show it did land on the barge. The internet is lighting up on what went on there.
I have no doubt it did, the cloud pattern in the distance is the same as the one just before the communication loss. The NASA Utube channel has the entire launch and will be live until they dock at the ISS tomorrow.They better play that video to show it did land on the barge
At about 8:32 in at the link 2 communication messages are issued, the next live screen is the first stage sitting on the deck. The link is live so that time may be off by a few minutes. Preceding that, the first stage was shown firing its directional rockets as it descended.I watched it on National Geographic and didn't see anything missing or "suspicious".
There was a brief communications outage from the recovery of the first stage, nothing unusual IMO. I just find it amazing they can land that thing by remote control on a platform being tossed around in the ocean.Call me slow, but I guess I don't understand what folks are getting at here. Is the actual launch being questioned to as to whether it actually happened or is it something else?
