Why does the SpaceX droneship camera cut out?
It was back in 2015 when SpaceX landed its first rocket successfully, after several attempts that ended up in fiery explosions every time, the company was trying to save the majority of its Falcon 9 rockets after they lift off, in order to re-fly them again to reduce the company’s overall manufacturing costs.

The Rocket Was Carrying 11 Satellites destined for low-Earth orbit, and it’s very important to note that Falcon heavy is not a small rocket like BlueOrgin New Shepard or SpaceX Grasshopper, and it carried important cargo in this mission before its successful landing on a landing pad at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

SpaceX has aimed from the beginning to have a Sea-based rocket landing since 2013. After many Failures, They Collected the data to make their first successful Sea-landing on a moving pad in the ocean in 2016, the drone ship called “Of Course I Still Love You”, a Floating barge, like its sister ship “Just Read The Instructions,” it is named after a starship in the late Iain M. Banks sci-fi novels.

Sea-based rocket landings are considered to be more difficult than ground-based landings. It’s a smaller target area and the drone ship itself is constantly moving because of the motion of the sea.

So, it would be reasonable to question; why all future launches aren’t attempted on stable ground? Why SpaceX would choose a drone ship landing over a more stable landing pad? & what’s the mysterious robot roaming about on one of SpaceX’s drone ships?

    Really wish they would come up with better names….

    Too Elementary

    does the robot use strong electromagnet to stay in position while stabilizing the rocket?

  5. kir kan on May 27, 2022 at 10:21 pm

    why it cant just be landed in water?

  6. Molten Bramley Apple on May 27, 2022 at 10:21 pm

    Thanks for the big red arrows and circles on the thumbnail.

  7. The Snippet on May 27, 2022 at 10:22 pm

    The robot is so cool

  8. factinator33 on May 27, 2022 at 10:23 pm

    STARSHIP is the best technology
    They have now, with that re-entry

  9. Rofyda El-Bassyouni on May 27, 2022 at 10:28 pm

    Great 👌

  10. Old-Wise-One on May 27, 2022 at 10:28 pm

    FYI – The Octagrabber uses electro-magnets to hold its self to the steel deck via the power cable. As long as it’s powered the rocket won’t move.

  11. Rocky Raab on May 27, 2022 at 10:29 pm

    One thing not explained is the guidance technology that gets the booster to the drone ship and hits it dead center. They get only one shot at it, so the terminal guidance has to be both extremely fast and accurate.

    Dude, get to the point.

  13. David04 Geyser2021 on May 27, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    Elon’s Nobel !!!

  14. GBDude on May 27, 2022 at 10:39 pm

    I wish so much they would show it in action. This seems to be the one thing they are secretive about is showing it attach. Would be so cool to see it. Anybody have a link if I mistaken?

  15. R Anderson on May 27, 2022 at 10:41 pm

    I am surprised there isn’t an opening in the center of the ship so that the exhaust and heat is dispersed by the ocean. Or a stow-able autonomous crane that lowers the rocket for transportation.

  16. Osel Somar on May 27, 2022 at 10:41 pm

    Strangely, I don’t see anybody over 30 on the Musk’s teams.

  17. Bastek on May 27, 2022 at 10:41 pm

    Falcon 9 is 70 meters tall, not 48. First stage alone is ~50m

  18. Claude LeBel on May 27, 2022 at 10:41 pm

    Clear and strong narration.
    Easy listening compared to computer-generated voices or hosts that speak a hundred miles an hour.

  19. Miguel Powelista on May 27, 2022 at 10:41 pm

    Improvements to me are the cameras on the drone ship….then I just recently saw a video on why some of the feeds are never clear on some of the landings and it makes a lot of sense after I viewed it…

  20. Amazing Janni on May 27, 2022 at 10:42 pm

    the best tech. from spacex is the starship landing system

  21. Ev1331 on May 27, 2022 at 10:42 pm

    Hello, I think it would be great to be more direct. It took 3 minutes before entering the real subject (… a 1/2 of the video). I think people searching for this already know enough and don’t need to have a 3-minutes talk about SpaceX, it’s terribly long, and already explained everywhere else.
    Edit: absolutely no scoop in this video
    The robot leaves his garage, secures the rocket and that’s all. Literally nothing else is explained…

  22. h on May 27, 2022 at 10:44 pm

    "How Octagrabber safe boosters after landing?" what?

  23. Hoyle Kiger on May 27, 2022 at 10:47 pm

    Great video. What type of engine power does "Short Fall’ use?

  24. SpeedyCotton55 on May 27, 2022 at 10:48 pm

    I really enjoyed this, thank you.

  25. Nhsbbs B on May 27, 2022 at 10:50 pm

    Great videos keep up the content and I don’t know why you have 3k sups but u need more keep up the good work

  27. Rato Riti on May 27, 2022 at 10:59 pm

    In the end, SpaceX become as one main company from build the technology then manufactured and supplied rocket to all…

  28. vincTarbes on May 27, 2022 at 11:05 pm

    Still amazed by the landing of the 1st stage of Falcon … Around 04:30 (or 04:40), what happened at the end to the 1st stage dancing the jig on the droneship ???

  29. Disturbed47 on May 27, 2022 at 11:07 pm

    I think they should use a ‘Tholian Web’ to catch their rockets and forget about all these drone ships. 🙂

  30. ENZO B on May 27, 2022 at 11:08 pm

    The names of the ships are the best part haha

  31. Mak er on May 27, 2022 at 11:08 pm

    They need to design a small space-tug 🚀 that can be sent up a by a Falcon9 buster. You never know when you need a pickup. Just send it up, park it and call it up when you need it. 👩‍🚀

  32. z244824 on May 27, 2022 at 11:09 pm

    F9 doesn’t put 2nd stage into orbital velocity. It’s not sso
