    Looks like early fuel depletion caused engine shutdown just above the pad. But vehicle is still in one piece. We just completed the post-landing data inspection and all systems look good.

    @iSpace @GalaxyEye kind of like my Neutron that guides itself without any aerodynamic guidance systems other than its own body. So unless a grid fin gets stuck in the wrong position it should be able to guide itself offshore, especially since the pad is near the sea.

    @iSpace our company had filled your form to launch DNS-01. Please confirm.

    @GalaxyEye theoretically, Beta(Block.3) can land on target site when one of grid fins doesn't work.

    @GalaxyEye guides itself to sea. Like CRS-16

    @iSpace Another question, what will happen if the booster's grid fin get out of control? self-destruct in the sky? or crash into the ocean?
