That is awesome, I wonder what the limits are landing in a little rougher sea state when the deck is pitching a bit. Also wonder if they have some type of automatic locking device? That deck must get awfully hot with whatever exoctic fuel they are burning.

Not exotic fuel. RP1 (essentially kerosene) and liquid oxygen.

I can't wait for Elon to get all 20,000 (his real dream #) of those little StarLink satellites up into orbit.
The sky is going to become a real light show.

Wonder if they caught the nose cone with the net. Went past the two net boats on our cruise last week.
