    You can't even see the rocket for the fog. Probably won't get to see the landing.

    I wonder if the barge is manned. I wouldn't want to be on it if the rocket heads to it the other way.

    It's not, it's a "drone ship" apparently. Which is cool as fuck. I so hope they get this down.

    Any idea why they name the drone ships such odd things. This last one was called "Just follow the directions" And one of the last ones was called "Of Course I Still Love You" Are they supposed to be messagess to the rockets or something!!??

    Awesome stuff none the less, no matter how you cut it!

    I had heard he names ships after science fiction books by Ian M. Banks, "The Culture Series." In those books ships are sentient, name themselves, and have very goofy names. The author died so he named them in honor of him.
