Watch SpaceX’s rocket land in the ocean after spinning off target
SpaceX CEO Elon Musk shared video of the company’s rocket booster splashing down just off the Florida coast on Wednesday after missing its intended target.
The rocket was supposed to land at LZ-1, the company’s concrete landing pad at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
Musk said in a tweet on Wednesday that the booster’s “grid fin hydraulic pump stalled,” sending it off course. Despite the water landing, Musk tweeted that the rocket “appears to be undamaged” and “is transmitting data.” He added that the company “may use it for an internal SpaceX mission.”
