Perfect launch and the two side boosters nailed a synchronized landing back at the Cape!!!
The core is on it's way to Mars/Earth/Sun orbit..... wow!!
Yes, you're correct... the payload (with the roadster, etc..) is going into earth/mars/sun orbit.I think the "core" was supposed to also return and land on the boat but the feed cut off due to vibration with no personnel on board. Maybe it's the pod that stays up there with the Roadster. I've heard rumors that the core may have failed on landing but not confirmed. Regardless, super pumped about what I did see with the Roadster in space with Earth in the background. The boosters landing simultaneously exactly on their mark almost looked fake it went so perfectly.
According to Elon's live interview, the boosters were slightly staggered so their radars wouldn't interfere with each other on the landing(s).I was impressed by how synchronized the booster descent and landing was. You'd think that with the speeds and tolerances involved one or the other would end up at least a bit ahead of the other.
