Don’t get too excited. They very cleverly have edited the tape so that we do not see what happened after touchdown. You can see how the left landing gear does not completely deploy, but then they cut away. Nonetheless, the video is posted below the fold.

    I can’t seem to see any of the 50+ comments, either. Come on, Sierra Nevada, show us ALL of the landing! Stop trying to sugar-coat the issue! You are behaving just like the government; not showing the warts as well as the beauty. I will be less inclined to support you program (through my rep and Senators) if you keep editing out any bad news.
