NASA has postponed the launch of Dragon to ISS with mould

SpaceX is in a long-term contract with NASA to ferry supplies to space.

Booster Falcon 9 company SpaceX on Wednesday, December 5, started with a cargo spacecraft Dragon went to the worldwide space station (ISS).

A stalled hydraulic pump for one of the booster's grid fins caused it to enter into a rapid spin on its return flight.

Meanwhile, a crowd gathered Thursday night at Jetty Park, hoping to see the rocket moved back to land.

Musk also posted the video of the first stage's descent, which showed it spinning as it fell to Earth, how its spin rate was slowly arrested with correctional thrusts, and how it touched down on the ocean and fell sideways into the water.

‘Stranger Things’ Retro Game Will Follow the Events of Season Three
It's a retro-styled beat 'em up you can play in co-op, set after the events of the third season of the award-winning show. The game will likely be released sometime next year, though no official release date has been announced yet.

But even with the landing not going as planned, Insprucker emphasized the successful launch.

Luckily, the mission controllers were able to stabilize the rocket in time with some bursts from the engine, bringing the first stage in for a soft landing on water off the coast of Florida.

"Appears to be undamaged and is transmitting data". The rocket was loaded with supplies, science experiments and food for the astronauts living there.

Musk says the new "block 5" Falcon 9 stages are designed fly dozens of times with minimal refurbishment between launchings, a key element in the company's drive to lower launch costs by recovering and re-flying recovered stages. This landing, while not 100% successful, was smooth enough that SpaceX CEO Elon Musk tweeted that the company may re-use the rocket for an internal mission.

The rocket was being used to send a capsule of cargo up to the International Space Station.
