Do you have link to archived webcast?

Does anyone make a copy or we have to wait for Spacex to release one of  their famous video compilations?

It should be available here: http://new.livestream.com/spacex/F9-6

EDIT: But it's not. Hmmm.

Probably need to wait for the press conference. 

Do we have an ETA for the presser?
I missed that...did they say there would be a post launch press conference during the webcast?


Right before sign off, they mentioned there would be a media event later in the afternoon, but no details were given as to time or whether it would be webcast or anything.
Did they mention where -- Vandenberg or Hawthorne?

ULA rarely do post-launch pressers although NASA always do.  I'm thinking that we'll have to wait for more conventional press releases from SpaceX, MDA, CSA and maybe 30th SW (the last being somewhat unlikely) to get detailed information.  Expect SpaceX to ration information about the core recovery for as long as possible, success or failure, until their team have had at least one run-through of the data.

Of course, American Islander steaming into San Diego towing a space rocket behind it would be kind of difficult to miss unless they do it at night.

OK, good news on the Cassiope and CUSAT separations - congrats to those teams and to SpaceX.
We still need to get confirmation on DANDE and POPACS.

ISTR they're not providing the secondaries dispenser, so a failure there might not be their fault?

Cheers, Martin

If I'm reading the L2 status correctly, all spacecraft are healthy during the AOS over Africa.

@COSGC_DANDE on twitter:
Separation of all payloads good. Awaiting state vectors.

so that's a success! Congrats SpaceX

How many of the Merlins were supposed to relight during 1st stage descent? The vehicle is a whole LOT lighter, don't forget!

First slowdown burn is three engines, final decent and landing uses only the middle engine.

Thanks! I presume for symmetry, one of the three on slowdown is the center engine?

The video said "relight of 1st stage to begin at this time" but no confirmation that it did actually relight.

Incorrect, he announced relight and that it was burning.

Despite all the complaints of the coverage, many valid, I really enjoyed the awesome sounds at the pad pre-launch.  Brought back memories of the shuttle APUs starting, the spark igniters firing, etc...
Best quote heard during an inspection, "I was unaware that I was the only one who was aware."

This is also strange.  The data dropouts appear to have represented skips in time on the real time broadcast.  If you try to make the "tape" time line up with the SpaceX clocks (there are two and there is a 14 second discrepancy between them), it does not.  SpaceX doesn't want anyone to be able to confirm the event times, perhaps?

The YouTube uploader trimmed the dropouts. No reason to sit through them on a recorded video.
