SpaceX Sees Successful Launch And Deployment, But No Go On Landing
SpaceX has successfully launched another mission into space, sending two satellites--one for Eutelsat and another for ABS--into orbit. However, the third attempt at landing the first stage of the company's Falcon 9 rocket failed, after two earlier successful attempts. According to a tweet from SpaceX founder and CEO, Elon Musk, the company's drone ship was okay, but there were issues with rocket control on the Falcon 9. A live webcast of the landing showed flames and smoke as the company lost its camera link with its drone ship.
