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.

I called it in and they said it was a reported outage but no Estimated Time of Repair. For me, it's channels 47 thru 66.
