True to his word, Elon Musk posted the much-hyped blooper reel of every SpaceX rocket failure, complete with massive explosions and the billionaires' unique sense of humor. The destruction is shown in chronological order with captions explaining the many reasons they fail, from running out of hydraulic fluid to engine sensor failure. It's just a scratch, ' regardless of the fact that it is in pieces. And CEO Elon Musk shared previously unseen footage late Wednesday night that is a compilation of explosive videos of the rocket landings gone wrong.
Another failed landing is captioned: "Well, technically, it did land... just not in one piece".
For two years now, SpaceX has been wowing us with the aerospace marvel that is landing the first stage booster of an orbital class rocket.
SpaceX has perfected the process involving the launch of Falcon 9 rockets, putting satellites in orbit, and recovering the booster, the most important and expensive part. A couple of weeks ago, the company revealed that it had successfully tested the first-stage booster for the Falcon Heavy.
'You are my everything, ' the SpaceX video states.
"You are my everything", Musk tells the rocket in the video. Last Thursday, SpaceX marked the twelfth consecutive successful landing attempt for the Falcon 9 rocket, and Musk has chose to celebrate their progress with the most explosion-filled (and expensive) blooper reel you've likely ever seen. The landing of flight 23 resulted in the first stable FULL landing at sea in April of 2016. While these explosions destroyed the first stage rocket - and since rocket landings were always considered a secondary mission - the overall missions these rockets flew were a success.
