The latest cargo flight to the ISS has arrived safely. SpaceX Dragon CRS-12 was berthed yesterday (16 August) by Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli. Here's a timelapse video of the launch, first stage recovery, capture by the manipulator arm and berthing to the ISS.

Oh yes. They've done it a few times now. It depends on the nature of the payload and the intended orbit as to whether they can -

 

 

a) bring the 1st stage back for a land landing

b ) land it on a barge

c) not land it at all
