Not sure where it's going but it's carrying an electric car into space.

You are.


The boosters landing perfectly vertical was pretty cool.

So side boosters land on land and the center core was on the barge? Did we see that land?

I think it landed but the camera cut out as it was coming down. Such a shame they only have one camera for the barge

From Reddit:
Elon confirmed that they did NOT successfully recover the center core. Only 1 of the intended 3 engines was able to re-light for the landing burn, and it struck the water near the droneship.
