Stage Falcon crash landed in the ocean after launching to the ISS

Stage Falcon crash landed in the ocean after launching to the ISS

However, as soon as this crucial part was phased out, Falcon's first stage (most expensive portion of the rocket) that was supposed to navigate itself back to the earth malfunctioned.

The Dragon cargo ship successfully made it to orbit, which was the primary goal of the launch.

"Engines stabilised rocket spin just in time, enabling an intact landing in water!"

It was SpaceX's sixth outright landing failure and the first since June 2016, ending a string of 32 successful recoveries, 20 on droneships, 11 on land at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida and one at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California.

Company CEO Alan Musk wrote on Twitter, "The grid in hydraulic pump stops, that's why the Falcon could only land in the sea".

SpaceX spokesperson John Insprucker said that the team will use the telemetry from the first-stage booster to find out the reason behind the failed landing. The mission was also historic because it involved a booster making its third successful landing.

SpaceX has a contract to ferry American astronauts to the space station as part of what's known as the Commercial Crew program with NASA, but the timeline for the first flights has slipped repeatedly. Previously, the mission of the Falcon 9 rocket SpaceX barely scratched the wind. The mice and their habitat were loaded into spacecraft shortly before launch, but the spoiled food had to be replaced ahead of launch.

The Dragon is carrying more than 56-hundred pounds of supplies and payloads to the International Space Station, including critical materials to directly support more than 250 science and research investigations.
