The first-stage rockets have a 84 percent recovery rate, according to the company.

The rocket engines compensated somewhat for the spin, and by the time the rocket hit the water, its fin had emerged.

A SpaceX rocket booster is still floating in the ocean after the Falcon 9 missed its intended ground target and splash-landed following Wednesday's launch from Cape Canaveral.

The CRS-16 mission launched supplies to the ISS on Wednesday, but the booster headed for the landing pad missed and landed in the water instead, ending SpaceX's flawless record of 12 previous successful landings.

Falcon 9 is now the only reusable rocket booster, which is a major selling point for SpaceX.

"The first stage did land in the water", SpaceX spokesperson John Insprucker said during a live webcast.

Videos swirling across the internet shows that the booster got out of the control as it headed towards the designated landing spot.

The launch itself was a success, but landing the rocket for reuse didn't go as planned.

In spite of this space has created a series of Falcon Rockets.

The rocket's Dragon spacecraft made it safely to space, where it's expected to dock at the space station Saturday morning with more than 5,600 pounds of supplies.

The CEO of SpaceX Elon Musk (Elon Musk) met with an Assistant Director of NASA to discuss the upcoming test flight of the manned spacecraft, which is crucial for SpaceX to become NASA's first manned space mission.

Wednesday's mission (CRS-16) was initially scheduled to blast off on Tuesday, but was postponed for a day after the mission team found that the mouse food in one of the science experiments had gone mouldy.
