    The image #10 says that it is a photo of the Crew Dragon siting on the recovery ship after the event, however it is actually a photo of the Crew Dragon capsule on top of the Falcon 9 at the launch pad at ~16 minutes prior to launch.

    You're correct, but the picture you cite shows up as image #16 in my slides rather than #10.
