SpaceX Faces Major Failure

Space X stooped down to despair as its attempt to land the fourth Falcon 9 rocket on the floating drone barge failed miserably. The Falcon 9 rocket blasted off from Cape Canaveral in Florida at 10:29 local time carrying two communication satellites into the orbit.

The rocket returned to land on a floating barge in the Atlantic Ocean minutes later after delivering its payload. Unfortunately, it failed to touch down and survive the landing.

Elon Musk took to Twitter after the unfortunate landing and allegedly pointed towards the low thrust on the rocket’s engines to be the reason for the collapse. A lot of controversial reports floored on the social media handles concerning the incident. Some reports left a question mark as to whether the first stage of the rocket was landed successfully or not. Soon, Space X confirmed that both the satellites had been deployed successfully into orbit.
