SpaceX Releases Vine Of Failed Landing Attempt

Hawthorne-based SpaceX has just released a video via Vine of its failed landing attempt of the first launch stage of its rocket booster in Florida. SpaceX had been attempting to land the booster on a floating platform, as part of its efforts to develop a reusable rocket booster. The video shows the booster failing to land on the platform, and scattering fire across the platform as it glances off into the water. The other half of the mission--the SpaceX Dragon capsule--successfully docked with the ISS earlier this week. (embed below)
