Watch SpaceX try to catch both halves of a Falcon 9 nose cone at 7:10PM ET | Engadget




Quote

If everything goes according to plan, the Falcon 9 rocket will deploy its payload 33 minutes after takeoff. Approximately 45 minutes after takeoff, SpaceX will attempt to catch the two fairing halves before they touch the ocean. The mission's launch window will open at 7:10PM ET and close approximately 90 minutes later at 8:38PM ET.

and Donald Trump is President of the United States.

So the mission succeeded. But they missed catching the two fairings. The first stage successfully landed on a drone ship.

Fun fact, the name of the drone ship the first stage landed on:  “Of Course I Still Love You.”
