the dry weight of Stage 1 is about 300 metric tons.
Gotta get a really big strong net!



Hi BillK, I see you specified dry weight of 300 tons.  OK that notion I
posted was a scaled down version of catching a 300 ton first stage.
Something that big is hard to see how they would catch it.  I can envision
doing something like a net recovery for something of 40 tons however.
