I has the audio off, screen was black and when I tabbed back to it Sputnik was empty.

Looks like the capsule had landed upside down.

Seems like it likes to land like that judging by what I've seen from earlier drop tests.

Just seen on the news... looks like it did not get high enough for the main parachutes to fully unfold

Seems like a little deformation on one of those white panels.

Might have hit the water hard.

Only thing that was missing was the altitude, for the main parachuted to unfold fully

Shame
