Cheap orbital refueling would really be a game changer "halfway to anywhere"

The landing was OK, but the video feed for both the barge and the first stage suffered major drop-outs, and clearly was a couple of meters off-center. The commentator noted that this one was a little "toasty." The judges deducted two full points. The Russian judge again deducted an extra point for boring, but as the high and low scores are disregarded, it doesn't matter to the score.

Clearly they're getting picky.

The barge was rocking and rolling enough in the tropical cyclone that it had trouble keeping it's satellite link alive.. and they still stuck the landing. Nice work! No additional points for style? ;-)

Nogo for launch
I noticed INDIA has a fail to deploy fairing and lost a satellite. They use a system very similar to what Musk falcon 9 uses to deploy fairing. They ran into a problem with the pneumatic pushers they use to deploy the fairing. I do not know if this was a local manufacture or something they have sourced out for spacex but basically it is the same system. Spacex is being very tight lipped on this problem, I do not know if it is because of the payload or other issues.
space.com
In terms of the next flight that SpaceX has under NASA’s Commercial Resupply Services contract, not much. The $1.6 billion agreement likely won’t be impacted as the cargo variant of SpaceX‘s Dragon spacecraft does not utilize a payload fairing (the rocket’s nose cone) when it travels to the International Space Station and the mission appears to still be a “go” for a December 4 launch date. When launched this will be the 13th flight under this agreement (CRS-13).

The payload fairing issue that SpaceX has encountered could mean that Zuma, as well as the Iridium NEXT 4 flight slated to take place on December 22, might not take place this year and the “unofficial” flight of the Falcon Heavy, which could have taken place later this year is unlikely to occur.

Same system never said it was same parts I was wondering if they used same parts, so maybe they were just being careful. Roughly 80% of the parts in any SpaceX rocket are made on the company's own factory. The other twenty percent are purchased from outside venders Just an interested question. It would be foolish to think they are not in the business of selling parts and pieces. They could undercut most suppliers by huge amounts .

Yey , airbags go off in a car and cause damage to the occupant; other automotive makers check to make sure that the same flaw does not exist in their system because they use airbags too..
logical and safety orientated.

I do not know if it is because of the payload or other issues. you might have missed that part of the statement.
