SpaceX just failed its third attempt to make history.
On Sunday morning it tried and failed to retrieved one of its Falcon 9 rockets after a supply mission to the ISS, which would have made it the first reusable rocket ever. But on its way down, the rocket appears to have exploded into tons of pieces.
The vehicle has broken up,” NASA confirmed on its live stream of the event.
HEre’s the rocket before takeoff.
Here it is soaring toward space.
And another angle.
Now it’s exploded into a bunch of bits.
