It costs payload to recover the boost vehicle. Especially to bring it back to launch site rather than a barge. Then again, the barge costs money. SpaceX has done a fantastic job of advancing the technology. The space race was us vs Russia. We launched the Saturn5 on 5 huge engines. The Russians tried to light 30 engines on their first stage with horrible results.

Nicely done - It's good to have foreground items to give the sense of scale.

Unless it closed in the last 90 minutes - I just came down the 330 from Arrowbear. Wide open like a Tuesday night during the World Series. Nothin but crickets - and an occasional patch-o-ice.
