SpaceX Successfully Launches to Space Station But Rocket had a Soft Landing Crash

•, by brian wang

SpaceX launched CRS 16 to the space station and was successful. The booster was trying to re-enter and land but instead had a spectacular crash into the ocean. However, the rocket was still intact.

The grid fin had problems. The booster started to spin off axis and it's starting spinning faster and faster. It soft crashed into the ocean as it only was able to get some control when it was already very low. It did not control itself to move to the landing craft. It slow up so that it did not break up and minimized damage.
