Yeah that was neat  I was watching it in the middle of the night the 
other night, and was funny to watch the lion that was hanging,  some 
russian traditon. they said.

But was funny to see it hanging straight down pre launch and all during 
the power phase.  then after engine cut off, it started floarting all 
around the cabin.

I was also amazed to see them using tools to adjust controls, kinda like 
remote gripper things.
