MUST WATCH

See SpaceX rocket crash landing

SpaceX's first attempt at pioneering a reusable rocket did not go as planned when the soft landing ended with a bang. The rocket ran out of hydraulic fluid minutes before landing, causing it to lose control and come in just short of the floating landing platform. While this first attempt was not successful, the company says they have at least a dozen more missions planned for 2015.
