Musk Shares SpaceX Blooper Video On How Not To Land Rockets
15 September 2017, 12:11 | Cedric Leonard
Watch SpaceX blow up a lot of rockets while trying to land them
But before Elon Musk's space startup learned to stick the landing, they had a handful of epic fails, complete with impressive explosions as the remaining fuel in the Falcon 9 booster ignites on impact. Then he went and did the damn thing. After years of working to ideal the technology, SpaceX was finally able to reuse their Falcon 9 orbital rocket booster during a March 2017 launch.
There's an old quote about failure often attributed to Thomas Edison, and while he may not have actually said it, it rings true here: I have not failed.
In March of 2013, SpaceX first announced that they'd be equipping Falcon 9 first stages to land after takeoff.
The video shows a range of issues, including exploding rockets, engine sensor failures and a sticky throttle valve.
The fact that the company can now release the video - revealing several clips of new footage - shows just how far the company has come.
A SpaceX unmanned Falcon rocket launches from Florida's Kennedy Space Center, Sept. 7, 2017. He shared the video earlier today with the message "Long road to reusabity of Falcon 9 primary boost stage..."
In a June 2016, he booster ran out of propellant resulting in another failed attempt.
Musk teased the video's arrival last week: 'Putting together SpaceX rocket landing blooper reel. 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. A couple of weeks ago, the company revealed that it had successfully tested the first-stage booster for the Falcon Heavy.
