SpaceX Falcon Heavy Landed Center Core But Lost to High Seas

SpaceX had successfully landed the Falcon Heavy center core but the center core fell over and into the sea due to large waves.

SpaceX was able to recover the two side boosters and the payload fairing.

There were eight to ten-foot swells and the booster was unable to remain upright.

SpaceX uses an Octagrabber robotic system to stabilize and hold recovered Falcon 9 boosters. However, the center core has a different shape which did not work with the Octograbber.
