Submission + - SpaceX Falcon launched, but telemetry lost

base2_celtic writes: The SpaceX Falcon rocket (and its second stage, Kestrel) both fired successfully this morning. Lift-off occurred at 0110 GMT, with the Kestrel second stage firing at T + 2 mins 52 secs.

However, telemetry from the second stage was lost at T + 5 mins 5 secs.

Optimization hinders evolution.
