OCN at its best again, sneaky SpaceX with their shenanigans... up to something sneaky hobbits. :rollseyesemojicausewedon'tseemtohaveanyoratleastI don't:

I come from the net. Through systems, peoples and cities to this place: Mainframe. My format: Guardian; to mend and defend. To defend my new-found friends, their hopes and dreams. To defend them from their enemies. They say the user lives outside the net and inputs games for pleasure. No one knows for sure, but I intend to find out. Reboot!

actually... I'm guessing whoever insures items of that cost will do some minor investigation... If anyone insures it? Which I'd assume they do since insurance is just fancy gambling.

Elon - Hey guys... that rocket? It's somewhere between continental shelf, & the mid atlantic ridge!

firm - moves to Costa Rica.

I wasn't being serious about the insurance thing. I'm sure there is tons of insurance involved in the program, but I doubt any of it would cover losing the rocket in the ocean because it wasn't secured.

Well previously when something exploded it turned out the satellite was insured but the rocket wasn't.

So it looks like the center only fell over and not into the ocean. It has returned to port.

Last I read it was being inspected for salt water damage to ensure that it would be reusable.
