Nice. Saw this in progress a few years ago in San Pedro, CA for a F9 launched from Vandenberg.

Watch a launch of a falcon 9 today. 8 launches and 8 landings of the booster. It was extremely rough on the recovery ship. They didn’t expect for it to be easy. They sticked the landing no problem.

I was watching today as well, I remember seeing a wave splash over starboard side just a few seconds before the landing and I was think this could get tricky.....

Then right as it was landing they lost the picture, I was thinking the landing malfunctioned somehow and knocked out the video, then when the video came back, it was a dead center landing....amazing...

The really astounding thing about SpaceX is, they make the fiendishly difficult look routine.
Elon Musk will end up changing the world as we know it more than anyone ever, if he manages to establish a colony on Mars and make mankind a multi planetary species.
