The International Space Station is set to be resupplied on Monday by a SpaceX Dragon spacecraft launched earlier today at Cape Canaveral. Unfortunately, SpaceX’s secondary objective — landing its experimental reusable F9 rocket on a sea platform — was less successful. SpaceX CEO (and Big Think expert) Elon Musk explained that his company got “close, but no cigar.”
Rocket made it to drone spaceport ship, but landed hard. Close, but no cigar this time. Bodes well for the future tho.
