This company is a private space exploration that has a $1.6 billion contract from NASA to go to space. The good news is that the rocket got off the ground and into orbit. Professionals are trying to perfect a reusable rocket, so that it can land on a platform in the ocean. But the bad thing is that the 14 story rocket landed softly, but then it tipped over and exploded. They aren't giving up yet, because they are trying to master the landing on a platform in the ocean so that it will be easier to land it on the ground. The rocket is headed for the International Space Station.
