    Stage one landing burn 'what a beautiful view' - what view? - cams cut off - again! And inflight cams late - again.
    The one on the rocket worked all the way to landing, that's the first time I've seen one land on a barge without cutting off.

    The stage was a second or three from landing and the next thing loss of signal on your link, and then it shows it down.

    I've just watched it again and 8:30 it lands without signal loss, I can't embed the vid at that point though for some reason.

    Q: why are SpaceX filling up the near earth orbits with these hundreds of starlink craft??? Dont we have enough junk up there already??
    Each satellite will be in orbit for only a few years.
    The satellites are designed autonomously avoid collisions based on uplinked tracking data. At the end of life, the Starlink satellites are to be actively deorbited, leading to reentry.

    Orbit: Circular orbit with an altitude of 550 km. The Starlink spacecraft constellation will be spread into 24 orbital planes with an inclination of 53.

    Could you watch the video in my link. I recorded 1 minute of the original showing just the landing.

    There was a loss of video signal but that was only from the landing barge camera.

    The booster cam worked all the way to touchdown and signal loss only occurred when the view switched from the booster cam to barge cam.

    That could be one heck of a fireworks show...but won't see as starlink will most likely de-orbit over the Pacific.

    I clicked on it, and got twin cam opening sequence at 8+ mins, clicked play and get error message. Dont bother about itr Ed, its not all that important.

    I have a question of the readouts. I thought the USA and UK were the same, MPH not KPH? Why does spaceX show speeds/distances in metric?

    Science tends to use metric units for everything. It makes for consistency.
