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

2 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.
His message also included a one-minute clip of a longer video posted to YouTube...

Set to the intro tune of Monty Python's Flying Circus, ‘How Not to Land an Orbital Rocket Booster' takes us through the chronological history of every failed rocket landing attempt - and the diverse reasons they failed. At an average of $61 million per launch you might think it cynical to make such a gleeful video. But there's good reason for the upbeat...

“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. One sequence shows a burnt out rocket with the caption, “it's just a scratch.”
The video is captioned with reasons for each failed episode, which includes running out of hydraulic fluid, running out...
