I Went On Vacation And All I Got Was This SpaceX Rocket
Tired of going on vacation and just bringing home yet more tourist tchockes and T-shirts? Well, one American vacationer visiting the Bahamas got more than he bargained for, when he ran across the wreckage of a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, washed up on the beach. According to Weather.com, Kevin Eichelberger found the wreckage off the coast of their beach house on Friday--complete with two GoPro cameras. The wreckage apparently was from the failed platform landing of the SpaceX booster rocket in April. SpaceX has been attempting to land its booster rockets on a floating platform, in order to reuse those rockets in future launches.
