First Stage Landing Video

UPDATE (5/28/2014)

Members of's forum are continuing to make great progress with the frame by frame repair of the Falcon 9 first stage soft splashdown in the Atlantic Ocean.

In an effort to see if the video can be improved further, below are links to both the original data file as well as the repaired source file.  The file labeled “raw.ts” is an extraction of the raw MPEG bitstream from the rocket. Our software team attempted to repair the data, resulting in the “repair1.ts” file, and the partial video above.  We welcome anyone to download the raw file to make improvements directly—if you are successful, please feel free to post your video at: <a data-cke-saved-href="" href="" line-height:="" 20px;"="">
