      Deus ex machina...

    You have to love SpaceX. They deliver everything to the ISS perfectly, return the first stage to.ground level in controlled flight (something no one else has done), then you hit one barge a bit hard and people print headlines about a failed mission.

    Still, it's good to have high expectations.

      Well, at least one barge owner is doing something useful with it!

    Someone must have forgotten to load Anton Shkaplerov's shirt.

      He got a t-shirt too but he's busy holding the camera. What is really surprising is that among three super-smart astronauts not one can work out how to use the camera's timer function.

        Well they could use the Canadarm2, but I think NASA/ESA would get a little mad at using a multi-billion dollar piece of equipment as a "selfie-stick"...

        If you can attach it to something. Good luck getting it stable unless your camera has RCS.

    SpaceX shows a commitment to make their technology work. Eventually they will solve this problem and and move on. NASA on the other hand would give up after the first failure and concentrate efforts on their primary mission to promote the major contributions to Science by Islamic Extremists.
