When I saw the stream I noticed that as well. Has anyone commented on that aspect yet? Definitely less information on this launch, no stage 2 data at all.

I didn't think there would be any stage 2 information. But I haven't heard a thing about the burn through though.

After rewatching the video, from my perspective they are lucky that thing made it into orbit. It looked to me like they had significant burn through, they made engine nominal calls throughout but to my eyes it looked different. Side note, I had the pleasure of driving by the first booster that landed on a barge while on a 4 hour cape tour. We literally had to pull over for the booster to drive by us. Amazing tour I loved it, my girlfriend would probably tell you different though.

It looked like it burned through, and then just quit and went back to normal. But yeah, it did look like they got lucky.

Re. burn through.

The telemetry didn't blink and neither did the commentators.

Assume its normal but we now see so much more.

It looks like the exhaust from the open-cycle generators on each engine.

If there was a burn through and significant problems during the launch, i doubt they could have landed the booster successfully.
