Watch SpaceX’s rocket fail to stick a landing — in slow motion

Elon Musk's SpaceX project is a quest to make space travel more economical. A key part of that quest is making reusable rockets: Rocket boosters usually burn or up crash into the ocean, but the Tesla and PayPal founder hopes to make them work more like airplanes - flying, landing, and then flying again.

The booster, from a rocket delivering supplies to the International Space Station, can be seen extending landing gear as it makes the descent towards the platform - an awfully small target in a big ocean. But it comes down too hard and tips over, resulting in a fiery flash.
