  • В США произошло ЧП с SpaceX

The launch itself was a success, but landing the rocket for reuse didn't go as planned.

The Falcon 9 rocket lifted off successfully at 1:16 pm Eastern Standard Time from Florida's Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, carrying 2,500 kilos of supplies, including science experiments and food for six astronauts now on board the ISS.

This mission should be 16 for of Dragon spacecraft under the commercial contract between NASA and SpaceX to supply the ISS. Unloading the rocket on the ocean's landing platform is a bit screwy, but SpaceX has succeeded in making the Falcon safe in the sea.

It's not every Friday that a 156-foot-tall SpaceX rocket booster is towed to Port Canaveral.

The rocket engines compensated somewhat for the spin, and by the time the rocket hit the water, its fin had emerged.

"Grid fin hydraulic pump stalled, so Falcon landed just out to sea", said SpaceX CEO Elon Musk in a tweet.

The first stage rocket had separated normally several minutes after the lift-off, but as it approached the landing site, it started spinning rapidly.

'Appears to be undamaged & is transmitting data. "Ships en route to rescue Falcon", he wrote.

This is the first time that SpaceX has failed to land the booster on the ground.

The effort is aimed at reducing the cost of launches by re-using expensive components, instead of jettisoning them in the ocean after each mission. Through this cargo, Species was sending supplies science experiments and food to astronauts living at the International Space Station.

The Dragon spacecraft, carrying almost 3 tons of science and supplies, is scheduled to rendezvous with the International Space Station on Saturday.
