Another fine launch. :thumbup:
Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be any coverage of the fairing capture operations :(

The reason is that the payload was recently added to the LV at the pad, so if anything were to happen, SpaceX could be on the hook for a 500+ million USD LV replacement along with whatever the NROL-71 payload cost. So, not a good day for anyone if the F9 first stage decided to have a bad day.


So it's just easier and cheaper to haul the ASDS out than to risk incurring a massive bill just because they wanted the 1st stage back 2 days sooner.
Just to add this: [ame="https://twitter.com/ChrisG_NSF/status/1070386693772058624"]Chris G - NSF on Twitter: "This shows a good command the logic of these #Falcon9 boosters. If they can’t make it to their landing target, they ditch in the water. Also shows why NRO asked #SpaceX to RTLS the Vandy booster two days ago on the drone ship and not overfly SLC-6.… https://t.co/aJtLoABGig"[/ame]

Hello "Kyle"

Once again very beautiful update !!!

Just tell you that for the mission CRS-16 after several tests the 1st floor of the Falcon9 remains vertical in the ocean.







Do you have a solution for it to float horizontally?

thank you in advance

Solution: take manual control, start spinning wildly, enjoy inevitable crash :)

Hi Pappy2, for the CRS-16 mission, I have to open the control panel with K, then change the parameters because it's set on EDL and not on Flyback-EDL and also select LZ1 because by default it's "CRS-16_splashdown_zone".

For me everything is good in the launchpad :thumbup:

Sorry, haven't been home lately, just got home today. I'll update for GPS later today. Additionally, I found this resource that includes all the exact ASDS locations, so I'll update accordingly. I was using the coordinates found in the FCC applications.

Houston, we lost our fairing at pre-launch!

Thank you for the Update! For yesterdays Iridium NEXT-8 launch I get a CTD cause the configuration file for "Falcon9R_V12\f9_v12_iridium_charred" is missing.
