Moment SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket Crashes and Explodes During Landing

Quote:
SpaceX launched its Falcon 9 v1.1 rocket on Sunday, successfully sending NASA’s Jason-3 ocean-measuring satellite into orbit, but failed a return landing on a drone platform in the Pacific Ocean.

According to SpaceX CEO, one of the Falcon 9’s legs failed to lock as it touched down, causing the rocket to topple in a “hard landing”.

The video shows the rocket toppling over on the drone boat.

The landing-fail reportedly may have been due to an ice buildup during the rocket’s liftoff.

Still what they did accomplish was pretty spectacular. Looks like they almost have it perfected.

The next SpaceX mission will be manned and the engineer who designed that leg lock system will be the only crew member.
