The center core of SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy rocket crashed while attempting to land on a droneship in the Atlantic Ocean on June 25.
The attempted landing came after the rocket had carried two dozen satellites into orbit for NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and multiple universities. It lifted off from Kennedy Space Center in Florida at 2:30 am, its first night flight.
Two of the Falcon Heavy’s side boosters successfully touched down at Cape Canaveral. Credit: NASA via Storyful
