SpaceX Suffers Malfunction in Landing of Falcon 9 ISS Resupply Mission

Watch live: After delay, SpaceX to launch space station resupply mission

Christmas turkey rocketed toward the International Space Station on Wednesday, along with cranberry sauce, candied yams and the obligatory fruitcake.

SpaceX made history on Monday with its Vandenberg launch, using a Falcon 9 rocket that had flown two previous missions. Although it is nearly without a doubt too early to actually know if the booster is in good enough condition to ever fly again, Musk seemed to directly suggest that it could eventually relaunch in support of an "internal SpaceX mission", basically either Starlink or tech development. It is the same capsule that was sent to the ISS in February 2017 with the CRS-10 mission.

But the tall portion of the rocket missed its goal of securing an upright landing on solid ground at Cape Canaveral s Landing Zone 1.

As has become standard practice for the California rocket builder, the Falcon 9's first stage was programmed to fly itself back to a landing at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station about eight minutes after launch in a bid to chalk up the company's 33rd successful booster recovery and its 12th at the Florida spaceport.

A SpaceX Dragon spacecraft carrying almost 6,000 pound of research equipment, cargo and supplies has successfully launched to the International Space Station (ISS), NASA said on Thursday.

Add that SpaceX's Falcon 9 Block 5 mostly meet the criteria of NASA for manned flights. SpaceX is expected to conduct an uncrewed test launch of its passenger craft in 2019 and then conduct its first crewed test later in the year.

"Grid fin hydraulic pump stalled, so Falcon landed just out to sea", CEO Elon Musk said on Twitter.

Today's SpaceX launch was previously postponed after mould was found on food bars in the cargo hold. Investigations on the International Space Station are organized by both NASA and the ISS National Lab.
