Looks like Marvin The Martian may have added that Eludium Pew-36 Explosive Space Modulator back onboard....

It seemed to slightly bounce when it landed. I haven't heard yet if the legs collapsed or if the new concrete gave way. The Spaceflight.com guys couldn't confirm if all legs deployed. They said they saw some, but couldn't tell if all were down. Either way, with the skirt down on the ground, the deluge gun couldn't push gases away or suppress flames effectively. With the slightly hard landing, it probably caused a leak or two in places they weren't expecting also.

They lit all three engines for the landing flip (as expected) then shut down two for the actual landing. Notice all the orange flame just after they shut down the two? A little bit is normal, but this 'fire' continued all the way through landing and well on the pad. Think they had a leak well before the actual landing.

Leg issues, and maybe something else. Here is Scott Manley's take: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CF9mdMI1qxM

Yes I always go to Scott Manley for his breakdown. He also did a good job on the Mars rover landing.

We would be gone if he did. Remember, he want to use it to blow up the Earth because it obstructed his view of Venus.
