SpaceX launches Dragon Cargo Ship, Rocket Landing for the First Time Failed

The stage made a soft landing on the water and continued to transmit data.

While the Dragon capsule is now on its way to the ISS, the rocket's spent first stage rocket failed to land properly at its designated "Landing Zone 1" pad along the Cape Canaveral coast.

He wrote, "The engine stabilized the rocket spin on time, due to which the Falcon could safely land safely in the water".

A SpaceX rocket booster is still floating in the ocean after the Falcon 9 missed its intended ground target and splash-landed following Wednesday's launch from Cape Canaveral.

SpaceX sent to the worldwide space station booster Falcon 9 with a cargo ship.

But even with the landing not going as planned, Insprucker emphasized the successful launch.

The revelation follows a forensic examination of a hotel where she was last seen on Saturday 1 December with a "male companion". Her family have been left "devastated" by the development, Auckland City Police Detective Inspector Scott Beard said.


SpaceX commentator John Insprooker said, "We have done an excellent lift".

Videos swirling across the internet shows that the booster got out of the control as it headed towards the designated landing spot. "Dragon confirmed in good orbit", followed shortly thereafter by confirmation that its solar arrays had deployed.

The CEO of SpaceX Elon Musk (Elon Musk) met with an Assistant Director of NASA to discuss the upcoming test flight of the manned spacecraft, which is crucial for SpaceX to become NASA's first manned space mission.

The mission was SpaceX's 16th mission for NASA as part of a long-term contract to ferry supplies to space. The rocket was loaded with supplies, science experiments and food for the astronauts living there. During the landing of its first stage fell into the Atlantic ocean.

In September 2014, NASA awarded the two companies a huge $6.8 billion contract to ensure that the United States would continue to send USA astronauts to the International Space Station without buying the headquarters of the Russian Soyuz probe.
