It was the first time a Falcon 9 booster had failed to make a ground landing.

The Falcon 9 rocket lifted off successfully at 1:16 pm Eastern Standard Time from Florida's Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, carrying 2,500 kilos of supplies, including science experiments and food for six astronauts now on board the ISS. "Ships on the way to salvation Falcon", - wrote in the video Musk.

Private spaceflight company SpaceX launched its uncrewed Dragon Cargo Ship on Wednesday for International Space Station (ISS), but unfortunately, he failed to land the rocket successfully.

Even though it didn't manage to get back to its landing pad, the rocket had enough smarts on board to stabilise itself before it fell into the water.

Meanwhile, an attempt to recover the booster's first stage ended in failure when the booster appeared to spin out of control during its final descent, settling to an off-target "landing" in the Atlantic Ocean just east of the launch site.
