The capsule will return to Earth on Jan. 13. Like us on Facebook to see similar stories, Judge sides with Virginia, but Robert E. Lee statue stays put for now. Some landing systems are not redundant, as landing is considered ground safety critical, but not mission critical. was destroyed on the pad in September 2016, gearing up for a 9-mile-high (15 kilometers) flight soon. Appears to be undamaged & is transmitting data. In addition, Koenigsmann said, Falcon 9 first and second stages both feature autonomous "flight termination systems," which would step in if the above safeguards somehow fell short. Koenigsmann also stressed that the public was never in danger during today's landing attempt. The Falcon 1 had failed on its first three launch attempts, and a fourth straight failure would almost certainly have been the end of SpaceX, company founder and CEO Elon Musk has said.

SpaceX just launched its 100th successful Falcon rocket flight. SpaceX, in particular, has never been shy about its failures and seems to relish in the experimentation and iteration that comes with building high-tech spacecraft. It's unclear exactly how the first stage stopped its roll, Hans Koenigsmann, SpaceX vice president of build and flight reliability, said during a postlaunch news conference today. (Think of how figure skaters speed up and slow down their spin by tucking and extending their arms, respectively.). The prototype that blew its top was slated to begin short test flights soon, but the timeline will now have to be pushed back a bit. Most recently, Mike served as Tech Editor at The Daily Dot, and has been featured in USA Today,, and countless other web and print outlets.
