SpaceX successfully copes with the delivery of satellites and other cargoes into space, but despite this, one of the company’s priorities is still the safe landing of the first stage of the Falcon 9 launch vehicle on Earth. December 21 last year for the first time managed to land the Falcon 9 at the intended point on Cape Canaveral. However, the company did not give up hopes to put a reusable launch vehicle on a floating platform. Such a chance fell on January 17 this year when the satellite Jason-3 was launched into orbit, which will conduct continuous observations of the oceans for two decades. Unfortunately, the third landing on a floating platform was unsuccessful. Due to a malfunction of one of the pillars, the rocket fell to its side, after which it fell to the site and exploded. The reasons for the incident are already understood, believing that all landing conditions were within normal limits, and the fall was due solely to a malfunction of one of the supports. In any case, Elon Musk does not intend to stop and plans another landing on a floating platform.
