Falcon 9 crashes and burns
by M.P.D

Recently on January 13 4:47 am a rocket was successfully launched to send supplies to the United Space Station. On this launch the people at NASA were making the first attempt at re-using rockets. The rocket (Falcon 9) launched fine, but NASA was attempting to land it too. If they successfully landed the rocket it could be re-used to end more supplies back up to The Station. The Falcon nine was sopposed to land on a floating pad in the ocean. Unfortunately the rocket hit the pad at a bad angle and did not successfully land. Because of this it is likely that NASA will have to alter some of their plans to successfully land and re-use the rockets.
