Elon Musk released a supercut of SpaceX rocket explosion videos with never-before-seen footage

5 monthes ago   |   By Business Insider

These days SpaceX, the aerospace company owned by tech mogul Elon Musk, makes landing rockets look easy.
But it wasn't always that way.
To underscore that point in a comical yet dramatic way, Musk has released a supercut of explosive SpaceX rocket tests.
"Long road to reusabity of Falcon 9 primary boost stage...When upper stage & fairing also reusable, costs will drop by a factor > 100," Musk said on Twitter early Thursday morning, referring to the company's reusable, 229-foot-tall orbital rocket system.

“Technically it did land... but not in one piece.” Elon Musk has posted a long-awaited blooper reel of SpaceX's failed orbital rocket booster which features plenty of explosions and fire. The tongue-in-cheek video is set to Sousa's Liberty Bell (more popularly known as the Monty Python theme song) and shows a range of rockets falling over, crashing, and exploding throughout the past few years.
