Checking the timing of the radio bursts, the team found that they could be explained by an object that emitted bursts every 54 minutes, with bursts lasting from 10 seconds to just under a minute. Checking additional observations, however, showed that there were often instances where a 54-minute period would not end with a radio burst, suggesting the source sometimes skipped radio emissions entirely.

just for the fun of it; the air-torching of the front fin til splashdown (2x speedup, ~4 min.)

01:10; camera protection glass cracks, 02:30; mostly burned away and the fin is visible again. 02:48; surprisingly, the fin is moving and again at 03:42. splashdown looks like its finaly breaking apart.
