So... if i understand this correctly, the camera shutter was open long enough for the booster rockets to complete a full orbit and land? I didn't realize the program used the same location to land as to launch. Wow.

The first stage booster doesn't perform a full orbit; the second stage and payload separate from it after 2.5 minutes. The first stage boosts back to an altitude of 250km, and lands back at the launch site (well, a few miles down the road on the same property) about 8 minutes after liftoff.
