There's plenty of humor here as the subtitles cover all the causes of failures, from "sticky throttle valve" to "well, technically it did land. just not in one piece". You can see the video here https://phys.org/news/2017-09-spacex-bloopers-video-orbital-rocket.html.
Musk delivered on that promise today (Sept. 14), with the debut of a video just over 2 minutes long that's filled with blowups set to the cheerful "Monty Python" theme song.
The two-minute clip shows rocket after rocket exploding, tipping over, crashing, and falling apart.
He comments: 'Rocket is fine? Rockets blowing up against the background of a clear blue sky really does look very glorious.
The company aims to decrease launch costs by using reusable rocket parts. And CEO Elon Musk shared previously unseen footage late Wednesday night that is a compilation of explosive videos of the rocket landings gone wrong. It doesn't, as the video shows.
"The course of true love never did run smooth", a caption reads. Previous attempts resulted in on-impact destruction of the craft's booster.
As for the second-stage, Musk said that SpaceX might attempt their first recovery during the scheduled Falcon Heavy demo flight this November. The SpaceX blooper video includes captions for each of the failed attempts.
While that's already an achievement worth celebrating, Musk has predicted that full reusability will be the key to making SpaceX rocket launches less costly.
SpaceX has now landed 16 first-stage boosters - seven on land and nine on a floating drone ship in the ocean.
