A Falcon Heavy Rocket successfully launched on its first night mission, STP2, and successfully landed the two side boosters back near the launch site, but the third booster failed to land on the drone ship out at sea.  It appears the third stage completely missed the drone ship by several meters.  The center booster was attempting a very steep and difficult reentry, the fastest yet.  It is not yet known what went wrong with the center booster.

As of this writing, the first two of three satellites were deployed successfully.
