The Autonomous Spaceport Drone Ship, as SpaceX calls it, has been christened the "Just Read the Instructions"—and the name is now emblazoned on the landing deck. The moniker is a reference to a ship from the late Iain M. Banks’ novel "The Player of Games." Another drone ship, under construction for launches out of Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, will be dubbed "Of Course I Still Love You," Musk said.
"These friends of yours are ships."
"Yes," Chamlis said. "Both of them."
"What are they called?"
"The Of Course I Still Love You and the Just Read the Instructions."
"They’re not warships?"
"With names like that?"
