As always, SpaceX is trying to make three Falcon Heavy boosters to land on Earth again. Two booster successfully landed on the Florida coast south of Kennedy. Both landed at the same time.
While the third booster should have landed on a drone ship that existed several hundred kilometers from the coast. Unfortunately, the third booster did not have enough fuel and failed to land. The booster was destroyed by falling in water at a speed of 500 kilometers per hour.
The center booster can only activate one of the three machines needed to land. That's why he failed to land on a drone ship. Booster just dropped into the water and destroyed. Not only that, the two engines on the drone ship were also damaged when the booster exploded.
"The explosion was powerful enough to damage two ship engines and showered the deck with metal strips," SpaceX CEO Elon Musk said. However, one booster that failed to land was not a big deal. Overall, testing the launch of Falcon Heavy ended successfully.
The rocket slid from Kennedy Space Center in Florida at 15:45 Eastern Time. About two and a half minutes of rocket launch, two rocket booster breaks off and returns to land on Earth. Both landed at the launch site in Landing Zone 1 and Landing Zone 2 on the Cape.
About three minutes after launch, the booster was breaking away from the load carrying section carrying the Musk's red Tesla Roadster. The booster then tries to land on a drone ship in the middle of the ocean. Unfortunately, the booster failed to land itself and fell in the sea.
