Raw video of Falcon 9 attempted barge landing!

It’s obviously not a good landing, but they came pretty close as you can see in this video.  Good rate of descent, good targeting, but with the loss of the control vanes at a critical moment, they came down askew, and then it looks like it tried to compensate, resulting in the rocket slamming into the side of the barge and exploding, sending debris flying right off the other side of the deck.  Still, not too bad; they’re getting very close to doing this.
