SpaceX's Falcon Massive Damage During Landing
Space missions and explorations gain so much fame, popularity and respect from all walks of life. These missions and explorations are so expensive that need so much attention from the organizers. Despite the risky and expensive mission, success is at hand and missions are accomplished. More quests are planned and have to be made for mankind. However, damages and, eventually, wastes are part and parcel of every mission.
According to a post via Science World Report, the SpaceX Falcon may have successfully landed on the ocean platform after its space mission. But there is a great concern after such space mission. The SpaceX Falcon suffered major damage and it is feared that it will not fly anymore.
Elon Musk, the company founder and Chief Executive, stated in his Twitter account that the heavy damage of SpaceX Falcon was due to high speed after its descent to the ocean platform. The rocket came from delivering a communication satellite into the orbit. Furthermore, the company revealed that rocket suffered damage because it needed extra speed to send the payload 22,000 miles into the orbit. It may have successfully reached the ocean after the mission, but it is believed that it will not be flying again.
According to a post via Discovery News, the SpaceX Falcon launched last May 6 to deliver a hefty TV broadcasting satellite into an orbit 22,000 miles above the Earth. An extra speed was required for the rocket to return. In a layman's term, the rocket has to experience five times more heating than the previous booster. The rocket is now taken to SpaceX's hangar at Kennedy Space Center. It will not be flying again but definitely be the company's life leader for ground tests to confirm that others are good.
Despite this situation, SpaceX will still continue to do space missions. In fact, it will try another high-speed ocean landing later this month when the company flies the Thaicom-8 communications satellite, the source said.
