That can't be the first beer to go into space.

Nice to see an old Skycrane still earning its keep.

Unfortunate issue with the test vehicle landing gear though. I'm going to guess insufficiently charged or leaking accumulator.

The fuzzy dice were a nice touch.  But since their low rider wound up upside down in a ditch by the side of the road, they probably should have post-processed that little bit of flare out.

I hope they weren't bitter about it.

Its just landing gear... its not gonna keep this thing from flying.   The good news is that the dreamchaser performed very well in the crash landing, and if there where people on board, everyone would have walked away.  Also, they say that the ship is fixable, but that they may not need to fix it at all, as they where only planning on getting 2 flights out of it, and they might have gotten all they need from the 1st flight...  And, this prototype is not the dreamchaser that they where planning to send into space, that one is still under construction...

Fuzzy dice. Cool.

But wasn't that thing missing a couple of wheels on touchdown?
