It's come and gone!  A little liquid methane burning after touchdown, but looks like a success!  Rocky Jones, Space Ranger could not have done better! 🚀

Yeah I was worried about that methane burn. Relieved when they extinguished it.

Looks like the 100's of changes to SN15 and the new version Raptors did the trick. No little Raptor fires on the way down like previous versions. And a nice, controlled touchdown.

Congratulations, SpaceX! Now you just need to fix the dodgy cameras.... :wink:

SN15 is now back on the pad for a second flight.

Somebody asked about this a while ago and I assumed they'd move to SN16. Seems not.

So.......they are just going to use SN15 until that rocket blows up and then push on to SN16?

Not sure. Might be just the two flights then on to SN16. Guess it depends what they can learn and achieve with 15.

Shouldn't SN15 be designated SN15.2... :tongue:
