That is so cool. Finally success after 2 failures.

OK, the 2nd landing was a failure. Seems like this technology is not that reliable yet.

I don't know if I would call the last landing a failure. If that landing strut had not collapsed (failed), would have been a total success!

Meanwhile SpaceX has achieved five successful rocket launches plus landings. ( German article here on heise.de )
APOD today published a photo with a single long time exposure showing the light traces from start and landing.
