    Yes, I watched it.

    Somewhat disappointing to have SpaceX cut off the video of the first stage having some sort of a problem as it attempted to land. Later, after we were only seeing the second stage, we heard that something happened and the first stage made a water landing instead of the hoped for landing on the land target pad.

    Glad to see that the primary mission is proceeding as planned with no trouble.

    Stage 1 did not make a successful landing, it ended up in the ocean.
    During return of stage 1 you could it see it starting to spin and tumble before they cut off the video from it.

    Even though it didn't make it to landing zone one, it was still a pretty good landing....lol
