Splashdown! SpaceX Rocket Topples into Water Following Technical Glitch

However, as soon as this crucial part was phased out, Falcon's first stage (most expensive portion of the rocket) that was supposed to navigate itself back to the earth malfunctioned.

SpaceX has enjoyed notable success landing its Falcon 9 rocket, which enables the company to reuse the vehicle for decreased costs, among other things.

The Dragon space capsule that SpaceX used for the current mission was earlier used in February 20017 as part of the CCRS-10 supply mission.

A hydraulic pump on one of the first stage grid fins stalled, and the booster ended up splashing down in the Atlantic Ocean in a water landing, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk posted on Twitter.

He wrote, "The engine stabilized the rocket spin on time, due to which the Falcon could safely land safely in the water".

In Kedarnath , Tarun plays a role of a pithu leader (people who carry pilgrims on their back), who fulfils the demands of pithus. As for Sara Ali Khan , this is a fine start as well since her next release Simmba is anyways set to take a very good opening.

The CRS-16 mission launched supplies to the ISS on Wednesday, but the booster headed for the landing pad missed and landed in the water instead, ending SpaceX's ideal record of 12 previous successful landings.

SpaceX was supposed to land the Falcon 9 rocket's spent first stage at a pad on the ground at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (CCAFS) in Florida, called "Landing Zone 1". The mission was also historic because it involved a booster making its third successful landing.

But even with the landing not going as planned, Insprucker emphasized the successful launch. It appeared to be undamaged and was transmitting data, Musk said, adding that a recovery ship was sent to retrieve it.

In spite of this space has created a series of Falcon Rockets. Through this cargo, Species was sending supplies science experiments and food to astronauts living at the International Space Station.

It should arrive at the space station on Saturday.
