SpaceX Launches Dragon Cargo Ship to Space Station, But Misses Rocket Landing

SpaceX Suffers Malfunction in Landing of Falcon 9 ISS Resupply Mission Elon Musk Twitter

The Falcon 9 rocket's first stage will attempt a landing at SpaceX's site along the coast, Landing Zone 1. The mission was also historic because it involved a booster making its third successful landing.

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket vaulted off the pad from California's Vandenberg Air Force Base on Monday, tearing its way through unusually clear blue skies on a path to secure at least four company records before deploying dozens of spacecraft.

Elon Musk later confirmed the issue, saying 'Grid fin hydraulic pump stalled, so Falcon landed just out to sea'.

At the moment, SpaceX is really inspired with his success against models of Falcon 9, and will probably continue his experiments with the rocket - however, it remains only to wait for that. Musk also indicated that ships were en route to retrieve the booster.

The launch was initially scheduled for Tuesday, but was delayed due to *checks note* moldy mouse food. They're away from their families and friends for months on end, don't have access to numerous basic creature comforts we all enjoy, and live on a somewhat limited selection of food... unless, of course, it's Christmas.

The timing of the holiday doesn't work out well for three of the crew members now aboard the space station.

European Space Agency astronaut Alexander Gerst, NASA astronaut Serena Auñón-Chancellor and Russian cosmonaut Sergey Prokopyev will head back to Earth Dec. 20 after six and a half months in space - but not before helping out with unpacking the Dragon!
