Video of the SpaceX Tremendous Heavy Booster Hover

Tremendous Heavy touchdown burn and mushy splashdown within the Gulf of Mexico.

This can look much more superb with the tower catch subsequent time.

I’ve been predicting with 99.9% confidence for over 3 months that SpaceX would catch the booster with the tower this yr.

The launch tower arms are solely a bit smaller than the drone ship. They usually alter up and down. That is solely the booster. It doesn’t want warmth protect fixes. We had a great hover. It’s software program and so they have finished the Falcon 9 booster like 200 instances. Sure stuff can occur however 200 falcon booster landings would present 99.5. However I consider within the SpaceX group and Elon. As soon as they’re recovering boosters then SpaceX solely wants 6 raptors to interchange higher stage. It will likely be 5 instances simpler to do extra launches after the booster restoration begins.

I believe the higher stage restoration can occur on the mission after this subsequent one. As soon as we’re recovering each with out harm then SpaceX goes full subsequent degree with fast reusability. Elon known as fast reusability important to colonizing Mars and it’s the hardest technical half.
