SpaceX “hard lands” on drone ship. (Updated with video)


SpaceX’s Falcon9 rocket “hard landed” on their “Just Read The Instructions” drone ship earlier this afternoon, breaking a landing leg on touchdown.  They have attempted water landings before without complete success, with the last landing being a hard one as well. Over 56,000 people were watching live on their YouTube Channel.   UPDATE: This video from Elon Musk on Instagram shows the landing and subsequent explosion of the rocket.
