The first stage looks wild returning that fast and on quite a bit of an angle.  Shocked

Amazing but I still do not understand why they want to land on a small floating platform when they can land it anywhere.  ??? Why add complexity?
Raining here.

I think it's a shorter trip launching and returning the rocket from the equator. I suspect the equator launch will come later.

In December I think they landed it on land.  It all has to do with the entry back from space where.

I found this
Quote
Some say that the barge would be much farther from the launch site and would allow the first stage to follow a mostly unpowered ballistic trajectory with some correction. However, it doesn't -- it has a boostback burn. This is because ultimately SpaceX wants to RTLS. Thus, they want to test a full, reversing boostback burn -- but can't for safety reasons. The difference between this partial reversing burn and a full burn are, relative to the entire first stage prop budget, small.
 

Still not sure but safety would be a concern with it falling on populated area.

A follow up to this - Space-X successfully launched a previously-used rocket! A first.
They also recovered a $6 million nose fairing for the first time.

This is the sound of people who love their job. (something I'll never know)

Pretty impressive to watch the countdown and launch. Crazy Dance (From about 17min)
