Something to get Spike even more excited!   :)

Elon Musk is thinking about an alternative landing system. The problem
is that the lander legs have to be strong enough to support the weight
of the lander section. And strength means extra weight. For the new
Heavy Booster the weight is getting a bit excessive. So he is going to
try and catch the lander (while it hovers) with the launch tower arm
to support the weight.  Needless to say, that's a bit tricky!
