SpaceX botched booster landing, but Christmas dinner made it to ISS

Сегодня к МКС отправят Falcon 9 с грузовым космическим кораблем

It appeared to be undamaged and was transmitting data, Musk said, adding that a recovery ship was sent to retrieve it.

On Wednesday afternoon, unmanned SpaceX Falcon 9 successfully lifted off at approximately 1:16 P.M for the worldwide space station.

The owner of SpaceX Elon Musk on this occasion, wrote on Twitter that a bad landing caused by a problem with a hydraulic pump.

"The important point here is we have a safety function on board that makes sure the vehicle does not go on land until everything is OK, and that worked perfectly", SpaceX vice president Hans Koenisgman said.

The reason for this landing was the failure of the control system.

SpaceX successfully launched ISS cargo from Cape Canaveral in Florida this afternoon, and as it has 26 times in the past, planned to land its Falcon 9 rocket for reuse. "Dragon confirmed in good orbit", followed shortly thereafter by confirmation that its solar arrays had deployed.

This mission is NASA's 16th mission of SpaceX, which is part of a long-term contract to deliver supplies in space. "All told, another great day for SpaceX and NASA". Through this cargo, Species was sending supplies science experiments and food to astronauts living at the International Space Station.

Dragon is slated to rendezvous with the orbiting lab early Saturday and re-enter Earth's atmosphere and splash down in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Baja California in January, according to NASA.

SpaceX's successful Falcon 9 rocket launch proved to be quite a spectacle for viewers and was considered a success despite the lost booster.
