The last second of the Falcon 3 launch video is just about the most expensive ‘fail’ footage ever shot, I suppose. But it’s still awesome – a beautiful launch, wonderful climb out and pitch over, with the atoll vanishing below, all looking very smooth. There’s a visible plume change at MECO, followed by, the, uh, failure event. Brilliant. Fingers crossed the fourth launch it all comes together for them.
