pin point

This newer farther range tracking cam footage of the last SpaceX first stage landing really puts into perspective how friggin hard this is to do. When you see the close up cam it just looks like the rocket comes in and botches the landing. But from far back you can see how they really are threading a needle. They have limited fuel and a giant multi-story building coming in at 100s of miles per hour that has to land on a dime-sized barge. They're so close really. It's just a matter of time as the last two failures were really just small malfunctions and errors.
