Musk posted the video—called How Not to Land a Rocket—on Twitter today (Sept. 14). SpaceX's most recent rocket landing occurred Sept. 6 after the launch of an Air Force X-37B space plane While SpaceX has had a string of successes landing its Falcon 9 rockets on floating barges in the ocean and on land, the private space company has had its share of failures as well. And CEO Elon Musk shared previously unseen footage late Wednesday night that is a compilation of explosive videos of the rocket landings gone wrong SpaceX has put together a bloopers video showing How NOT to land an orbital rocket booster.

Apparently, SpaceX is landing rockets on Earth even when it doesn't really mean to. As I've written before, SpaceX re-uses its rockets to cut down the cost of spaceflight launches.To compare, it cost NASA about $450 million to launch one space shuttle mission, compared to SpaceX, who can launch the Falcon 9 for $62 million or the Falcon Heavy for $90 million
Historically, most rockets have needed to use all of their available fuel in order to get their payload into space. SpaceX rockets were built from the beginn.. A look at how SpaceX achieves their astonishing landing accuracy with the Falcon 9 rocket

It's the first time the company.
SpaceX Earth To Earth Rocket. This is not the first time that SpaceX is hinting at building an offshore facility. On several occasions, the company's star launch vehicle 'Starship', previously known as the BFR (Big F---ing Rocket), has been showcased to take off from a water-based launch pad and even land back on pad after the separation. If all goes well, however, SpaceX might not be the only private company that's able to launch and recover its rockets. Follow me on Twitter . Check out my website
SpaceX had not previously attempted to land a rocket on land, and it marked the firm's first successful attempt to recover a rocket from an orbital flight. Previous attempts, all unsuccessful. For SpaceX, reusable rockets that land themselves—unlike the traditional model in which the rocket is left to burn up upon reentry—are a critical aspect of reducing the cost to reach orbit SpaceX's SES-9 Launch And Why They Land Rockets At Sea. With this in mind, it's not surprising that SpaceX would choose to land their rocket on a drone ship for this particular mission CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — SpaceX has put together a bloopers video showing How NOT to land an orbital rocket booster..
