Hans claimed that the water landing was pretty much smooth and today's incident showed how SpaceX's rocket are created to save itself in case if anything goes wrong. A Russian Progress freighter was launched from Kazakhstan on November 16 and a Northrop Grumman Cygnus cargo ship took off from Virginia the next day.
SpaceX's live launch coverage will begin about 20 minutes before liftoff. The landing marked the first time SpaceX had flown a first stage three times.
On Monday, SpaceX launched a Falcon 9 from Vandenberg Air Force Base, the SSO-A Smallsat Express mission, using a first stage that was making its third flight.
What is Falcon 9?This is rocket, belonging to the class of Falcon. The hydraulic pump for the landing fins apparently stalled, but the engines stabilized the approximately 160-foot-tall booster just in time, allowing for "an intact landing in water!"
"Appears to be undamaged and is transmitting data".

It's not LeBron's fault at all; it's just the fact you have so many groupies in the media that love to hang on every word. Especially when the attention is bullsh*t attention, fluff. "It won't be easy because it's Seattle", said Durant.
Today's launch was delayed by a day on short notice thanks to some moldy mouse chow.
The bad food was replaced ahead of Wednesday's launch. According to NASA, the Rocket experiment will test the reliability in space of a dental glue activated by ultraviolet light, while the Groot experiment will explore an alternative method for watering plants in a zero-gravity environment. If all goes well, the spacecraft will catch up with the station early Saturday morning. According to NASA officials, there are two Russian Soyuz spacecraft, which bring crewmembers to the station; two Russian Progress spacecraft; and Northrop Grumman's Cygnus spacecraft. Investigations on the International Space Station are organized by both NASA and the ISS National Lab.
On Wednesday afternoon, unmanned SpaceX Falcon 9 successfully lifted off at approximately 1:16 P.M for the worldwide space station.
See that small space station?
A SpaceX commentator called it a "bummer", but noted it was secondary to the main mission of getting the Dragon capsule to orbit. It is joining five other "visiting vehicles" now docked there: two Soyuz crew spacecraft, two Russian Progress cargo spacecraft, and a Northrop Grumman Cygnus cargo spacecraft. It's the first time that's happened since the groundbreaking launch of the company's Falcon Heavy spacecraft in February.
