A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket has successfully launched an ocean-observing satellite into orbit Sunday, but the rocket exploded after a failed landing on a flatform at sea.
At first it looks like that the SpaceX rocket had achieved its goal. However one of the four legs of the rocket failed, causing it to tip over and explode. Watch!
Well, at least the pieces were bigger this time! Won't be last RUD, but am optimistic about upcoming ship landing. pic.twitter.com/w007TccANJ
