In Brief
During SpaceX's Falcon Heavy launch, the feeds cut out at an inopportune moment: right before the core landed. We still don't know what happened to it.

The world just watched (and Tweeted furiously) as SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy successfully launched into the Florida sky, with a payload of a Tesla Roadster blasting David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” and dummy crew inside of it. The Falcon didn’t blow up during the launch sequence, and for the moment, looks like it’s on course to orbit Mars. The side boosters landed on their landing pads with the synchronicity of skilled ballerinas.

But the live feed cut off at a critical moment. What in the world happened to the core?
