Clean MECO and stage separation. About to do boostback of the booster. Grid fins are deployed.

Another successful landing. I don’t think they’ve had a failure for Falcon 9 since the first success, though they have lost them on Falcon Heavy.

Solar arrays deployed, and Dragon on its way to ISS.

  1. There have been a few “rapid unscheduled disassemblies” since their first land and sea successes, but they have quickly become the exceptions. Now if a booster doesn’t land successfully it’s big news.
