Unloading the rocket on the ocean's landing platform is a bit screwy, but SpaceX has succeeded in making the Falcon safe in the sea.
SpaceX was supposed to land the Falcon 9 rocket's spent first stage at a pad on the ground at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (CCAFS) in Florida, called "Landing Zone 1".
