 Falcon Heavy Rocket Main Booster Recycled and Successfully Transported but accidentally crashed into the sea


Netease Technologies News April 16, according to foreign media reports, SpaceXs Falcon Heavy Rocket launched successfully last week, and the core-level booster landed successfully on an unmanned ship. Unfortunately, on the way to the Florida coast, the Core I booster accidentally crashed into the sea due to excessive waves.

SpaceX said in a statement: Last weekend, due to bad sea conditions, SpaceXs recovery team failed to ensure the safety of thecore-levelbooster returning to Canaveral Port. When the wave reaches 2 to 3 meters high, the booster begins to displace and eventually fails to maintain its upright position. Although we all want to bring the booster back intact, team safety is always the first priority. We do not expect future tasks to be affected by similar factors.

The core stage booster of Falcon Heavy Rocket is improved with Falcon 9 booster.

After the second successful launch of the Falcon Heavy Rocket last week, all three first-stage boosters of the rocket were successfully recovered. Two boosters on both sides landed on the ground almost at the same time, and the core-level booster landed on the SpaceX unmanned ship. This is the first time that SpaceX has successfully recycled three boosters at the same time. During the first launch of the Falcon Heavy Rocket, two boosters on both sides were successfully recovered, but the core-level booster fell into the sea. Now it seems that the ocean has defeated SpaceX once again. Although SpaceX also has ways to ensure the safety of boosters on unmanned ships, it uses an octagonal robot that locks the base of boosters. However, because the core-level booster of the Falcon Heavy Rocket needs to be connected to both sides of the booster, its design is different from the ordinary Falcon 9 booster. So the octagonal robot cant be fixed in the same way. SpaceX will launch another Falcon Heavy Rocket mission in Florida this summer, using a new core-level booster and two boosters that were successfully recovered last week.
