This is the first time that the Falcon Heavy has been used for a commercial launch. The droneship Of Course I Still Love You was positioned approximately 967 kilometers downrange to recover the center core – making it SpaceX's furthest booster recovery attempt to date. While the center core successfully landed on the droneship, it tipped over in rough seas before it could be properly secured.
