From the I Hate It When This Happens Dept...

In watching the SpaceX booster recovery operation, I'm always frustrated by the loss of the video feed just as the booster approaches the barge.

This is especially frustrating after witnessing that fantastic dual landing ballet.

THAT was freakin' awesome and almost unbelievable.

If Musk had said 'HAha! It was an IML joint' I would have believed it.

Here's a video to explain what happens with barge landings, if there's anybody besides I, that didn't know exactly what was happening.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

Perfection is the enemy of progress. -Winston Churchill

-An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

Mister, that's a ten-gallon hat on a twenty-gallon head.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

The short version;
The rocket engines shake the bejeezus out of the transmitter and knock out the connection temporarily.

Instead of another ship, why not put the transmitter on a tethered buoy? They could also transmit to a drone that uploads to satellite. Drone could return to the barge once the rocket has landed.
