SpaceX's Falcon rocket ditches in water after sending cargo to ISS

В США произошло ЧП с SpaceX

In the end the engineers at SpaceX have taken the booster from the land

The SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, which launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base carrying 64 "smallsats", set a record for most satellites strapped to a rocket booster, a stack more than 20 feet tall. "Ships on the way to salvation Falcon", - wrote in the video Musk. Hans claimed that the water landing was pretty much smooth and today's incident showed how SpaceX's rocket are created to save itself in case if anything goes wrong.

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

Meanwhile, an attempt to recover the booster's first stage ended in failure when the booster appeared to spin out of control during its final descent, settling to an off-target "landing" in the Atlantic Ocean just east of the launch site.

And earlier today (Wednesday Dec. 5th), SpaceX launched its sixteenth Commercial Resupply Services mission (CRS-16) to the International Space Station (ISS). 'Ships en route to rescue Falcon'.

It was the first time SpaceX ever failed to land a booster on solid ground, following a string of 12 straight successes.

Jeep Wrangler Scores Only 1 Star In European Safety Rankings
In the full-width rigid barrier test, the driver's chest protection was rated as marginal and neck protection was rated as weak. In Europe, the Wrangler's safety systems are limited to a seatbelt reminder and a driver-operated speed limiter warning system.

SpaceX and Boeing have signed a contract with NASA to send United States astronauts to the International Space Station.

The effort is aimed at reducing the cost of launches by re-using expensive components, instead of jettisoning them in the ocean after each mission.

Other experiments among the more than 250 on board include a new kind of mustard green lettuce that astronauts will grow in space.

The rocket was being used to send a capsule of cargo up to the International Space Station.

It should arrive at the space station on Saturday.
