Elon Musk shared a video on Instagram that shows the landing of stage 1. Watch below.
SpaceX said that the stage landed softly but leg 3 didn't lockout. The rocket stage was landing within 1.3 meters of droneship center.
Elon Musk is optimistic about the next attempt. He tweeted: "Well, at least the pieces were bigger this time! Won't be last RUD, but am optimistic about upcoming ship landing."
