Falcon Heavy dreams

Dreamed about watching the 1st Falcon Heavy liftoff on a TV. Didn't see the engines ignite because the TV started by showing the wrong video. Someone changed it only after it was off the pad. It actually made it off the pad & was doing the pitch program. Then the right booster went out. The other 2 kept going & it strangely didn't terminate as it continued pitching over & Elon's car headed for the water. After the longest wait, it finally exploded. It seemed because the booster was the 1st to be reused from a geostationary mission, the additional stresses were an untested configuration.

Then dreamed about a 2nd Falcon Heavy liftoff which happened many years later because of the time needed to evaluate the failure & prepare 3 more boosters. It actually made it to orbit & the core stage was being shown returning to the boat. It started the landing burn real late & slowed down dramatically. As it neared the barge, it was oscillating a lot more than usual. After it hit the boat, it ended up falling over like an earlier launch & exploding. The extra mass in the center core was an untested configuration much like the earlier launches.
