unfortunately it looks like the waves are rough at the landing site and Mr Steven has reportedly turned around... looks like unless we get a 24hr scrub, there won't be an attempt to catch the fairing during tonight's launch... Given that the next launch is DM 1 with no fairing, i guess the next fairing catch attempt will the FH Arabsat mission in mid-late March (when that launches is likely entirely up to when DM 1 gets off the pad as both fly from 39a)

This sounds quite dramatic:

BREAKING: Mr Steven returned to Port Canaveral at 4am this morning local time with only 2 arms installed. The ship looks to have suffered damage at sea. Cranes are attending to the ship in port now. Photo today taken by @spacenut59 showing them removing the rest of the structure.
