Splashdown! SpaceX Rocket Topples into Water Following Technical Glitch

В США произошло ЧП с SpaceX In the end the engineers at SpaceX have taken the booster from the land

5 Dec company SpaceX successfully launched and put into orbit the Dragon truck with food and equipment for the worldwide space station. The rocket was loaded with supplies, science experiments and food for the astronauts living there.

"The important point here is we have a safety function on board that makes sure the vehicle does not go on land until everything is OK, and that worked perfectly", SpaceX vice president Hans Koenisgman said.

The Falcon 9 rocket blasted into a clear, chilly sky; the first-stage booster was aiming for a touchdown back at the launch site, once its job was done. It had 5,600 pounds, i.e. 25,00 kilograms of gear.

To the global space station kicked off the sixteenth mission of the cargo ship Dragon under the NASA contract with SpaceX. But it is also reported that due to weather conditions in the vicinity of the launch pad at Cape Canaveral in Florida, the chance of launch is 90 percent.

Unfortunately, a grid fin failure resulted in the booster spinning, which was caught on video and shared by company CEO Elon Musk on his Twitter account. During the landing she lost control and began to spin around its axis. Unloading the rocket on the ocean's landing platform is a bit screwy, but SpaceX has succeeded in making the Falcon safe in the sea.

Some space-watchers griped about SpaceX cutting away from the botched landing in their live-stream of the event.

Alan Musk founded it on May 6, 2002.

The establishment of the agency aims to reduce the cost of the space transport and establish the human habitation on Mars house.

The Falcon rocket used for Wednesday's launch was not used in any prior mission.
