The reuse of the 1st stage is a milestone in of itself. Hopefully with the next upgrade to the Falcon 9 will allow for recovery from missions with similar parameters to tonights launch.

So did this first stage burn up or crash into the ocean? Would have been nice to see that in place of the landing. :P

Definitely crashed and not burned. They are designed to withstand entry.

Even without the boostback burn and the reentry burn?

Hmm. I did not consider that.

It probably wouldn't be fully intact, but it wouldn't be fully burnt up either.

Aaaaand... a Pi day pun to end things off!

Good night!

Wouldn't the core booster of the F Heavy have to deal with these speeds? If so, I think this would be mostly intact.

Until it smashes into the ocean, of course.

Mission success! Great launch, pretty disappointing lack of landing attempt, great two second stage burns and awesome spacecraft separation.  I have enjoyed sharing this with you guys. Now I'm going to attempt a landing on my bed. That was a radical pun there at the end. Good night.

Heh.

I'm actually in Scandinavia, so the time makes sense (about as far away from Groom Lake as you can get...)

Back up a moment here....

This was a reused first stage?

If not, sorry, I just woke up.

Presumably the core booster needs to spare lots of fuel for the backburn & reentry burns.  Still, I think landing the center booster will be a stretch and have pointed this out a lot (expect a big difference between the mass launched with three recovered boosters and two).

@Spaceception Good morning :P The SES-10 launch will feature the first reflown stage. It will either be the next launch from now, or the one after that - depending on whether or not a CRS flight gets pulled forward on NASA request. Right now It's tentatively NET March 27th.

(EDIT: The stage is already somewhere at the cape. A potential candidate was spotted here, but people aren't sure because it's not been repainted.)
