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.

SpaceX gains official approval to launch high-speed satellite Internet service

SpaceX has received official permission from the U.S. government to launch a fleet of satellites designed to beam high-speed Internet signals down to Earth.

The decision marks a major milestone for chief executive Elon Musk as he pursues a dream of putting 12,000 small satellites into low Earth orbit, connecting rural and developing parts of the world to the Internet.

Happy 1 year anniversary for feeling special. Elon has turned crazy since then.
