Previous attempts to rescue the panels that protect the missile's payload from the atmosphere were unsuccessful requests from SpaceX to expand the ship's network. According to the company's latest announcement, the new network is about four times larger and hopefully will see action in a few weeks.

Firstly, the panels move quite fast when they are at sea level, about eight times the speed of sound. A guidance system, bow thruster and a deployed parafoil are designed to help slow down the disguise and help them find their proverbial catching glove. The new and improved network will hopefully bridge the gap between vision and reality.

The goal is to have the new ship ready in time for the Iridium-7 Falcon 9 mission on July 25th.
SpaceX has high hopes for Mr. Steven, we hope the new ship is up to the challenge.
