Hopefully the video equipment on the barge survived and was working. Let’s hope video will be released…stay tuned.

UPDATE: Musk has added that “they didn’t get good video of the landing attempt” and  “Ship itself is fine. Some of the support equipment on the deck will need to be replaced.”

UPDATE 2: Musk tweeted about the Grid Fins – “worked extremely well from hypersonic velocity to subsonic, but ran out of hydraulic fluid right before landing.”

If you missed the great launch
