    It did everything right except the landing.

    The issue was low pressure in the methane header (landing) tank. The engines ended up oxygen rich, digesting themselves (green plume). Low thrust caused it to come in hot.

    OTOH; staggered engine shutdowns on ascent, divert to over the Gulf, rotation to horizontal, Adama Maneuver + coast back to shore, and rotation back to vertical went like clockwork – ending up dead-center on the pad.
