Elon Musk just made a SpaceX FAIL video

Those attempts are now available to recap in full in one convenient fail video, created by SpaceX, which provides an awesome look at the price of progress when it comes to rocket science. Then he went and did the damn thing. Musk is the founder and CEO of the company, and the video contains the many failed attempts at landing their Orbital Rocket Booster before pulling out a win. Each failure, though, resulted in new data for the company's engineers to study, making tweaks to the rocket's software and the complex algorithms used to safely land the booster.

While you might think that SpaceX would want to hide its failed landings, Elon Musk's firm has done the opposite. The destruction is shown in chronological order with captions explaining the many reasons they fail, from running out of hydraulic fluid to engine sensor failure. SpaceX also launched three missions this year in expendable configuration - which of course means they didn't attempt to land them at all. It's just a scratch, ' regardless of the fact that it is in pieces.

In a tweet Thursday morning, Musk said, "Long road to reusability of Falcon 9 primary boost stage..." After another huge fiery explosion, this one on the company's barge, the caption reads: "Well, technically, it did land. just not in one piece".

At its conclusion, the video showed the first successful droneship landing in April 2016.

A SpaceX unmanned Falcon rocket launches from Florida's Kennedy Space Center, Sept. 7, 2017. But, like every innovation in history, SpaceX's first attempts weren't exactly an outstanding success.
