Inspect SpaceX's Fastest Barge Landing in Detail

Last week, SpaceX made its fastest ever successful rocket landing on its drone ship, despite having claimed that it was“unlikely” to be a success. Now you can watch it from three different angles.

SpaceX had already landed a Falcon 9 rocket on a drone ship before, but this time round it was exposed to far higher velocities and greater re-entry heating on its way back down. SpaceX still absolutely nailed it, as you can see.
