Falcon 9 gets its feet wet as SpaceX notch up two more launch successes


Gruesome Post-Mortem

While SpaceX is interested in the failed hydraulic pump on the grid fin, I would love to see what happened to the single engine that was running when the Falcon 9 stage dropped into the water. The thermal shock, hot corrosion, unplanned back pressure - that'd make for an interesting materials failure analysis.
