Incredible Video Of A Spaceship Exploding As It Tries To Land
Better luck next time.
Well, that could've gone better.
When SpaceX, the space exploration company founded by entrepreneur Elon Musk, launched a resupply ship to the International Space Station, the plan was to have the Falcon 9 rocket return to Earth and land on a platform floating approximately 200 miles off Florida's coast.
As you can tell from the above video, tweeted out by Musk, the rocket didn't exactly stick the landing.
As 14-story-tall ship descended upon the floating platform, the section's fins lost power causing the rocket to tip over and explode.
