SpaceX’s Falcon 9 Will Fail Again?


FAILURES ARE AWESOME. Thomas Edison racked up thousands before he made a working lightbulb. Elon Musk’s dogged engineers only needed four to safely land a Falcon 9 rocket on a floating barge. Even with that success in its pocket, SpaceX is amped to fail again. Round seven1 of rocket versus barge will be the postscript to a launch aiming to inject a Japanese communications satellite 22,300 miles above the equator. Firing something that high requires a lot of oomph.. Which is why Musk is predicting this landing is going to blow. Up. Spectacularly.
