Data upload from tracking plane shows first stage landing in Atlantic was good! Flight computers continued transmitting for 8 seconds after reaching the water. Stopped when booster went horizontal. Several boats en route through heavy seas...

+Martin Wynne where have you been, living in a cave? :-)

SpaceX just launched a payload into orbit and then returned the 1st stage to earth to land upright on its tail (just like the rockets in 1950's sci-fi). Of course, since this is the first successful test it didn't land back at the launching pad yet (it landed on the ocean and then fell over :-)

Orbit insertion and Dragon deploy all good. Falcon reentry burn also good. Waiting for landing data from tracking plane.

+Paul Holt I wondered about that as well.  I think it looked almost liquid.  I wonder if there was water accumulated in the pit and it splashed out when the engines ignited and the color is just soot from whatever other random stuff that just got incinerated.

SpaceX designs, manufactures and launches the world’s most advanced rockets and spacecraft.
Introduction

SpaceX designs, manufactures and launches the world’s most advanced rockets and spacecraft. The company was founded in 2002 by Elon Musk to revolutionize space transportation, with the ultimate goal of making life multiplanetary. In 2010, SpaceX became the first commercial company in history to send a spacecraft into orbit and return it safely to Earth. In May 2012, SpaceX again made history when its Dragon spacecraft became the first commercial vehicle to successfully attach to the International Space Station, something previously accomplished only by governments.  In October 2012 and March 2013, Dragon again successfully delivered cargo to and from the space station in its first two official cargo resupply missions for NASA.
