SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket Fails to Land on Barge

The accident took place yesterday, 17 January 2016. Jason-3's first stage hits the barge perfectly at good velocity, but a landing leg that failed to lock caused collapse after engine shutdown. Preliminary cause - ice buildup due to fog. High probability of success for the next attempt, with Falcon 9 Full Thrust carrying SES-9, which will launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

So the rocket finally lands perfectly on a barge that's in the middle of the ocean with the strongest El Niño ever recorded causing the weather to act more wild........and you're telling me it didn't land because of ice build up? what did you expect it's January.

Come on! this isn't rocket science! ;):squirrel: :(|):|:D

So by your warped and twisted logic, once someone has commented on a video and said for example, "that was great" they are then barred from saying the same thing again. Next time they see a video they like, thay have to think of something else:

2) "That was amazing"
3) "That was incredible"
4) "That was exciting"
5) "That was wonderful"
6) "That was fantastic"
7) ... ad infinitum (or until their thesaurus runs out of words).

Cosmic yawn.

#18 That's OK. I was just winding you up. I know you mean well by up-voting me, but to be perfectly honest the voting system doesn't interest me. I never up vote or down vote anyone. It's just silly. :)
