SpaceX Rocket Survives Space But Not The Sea

SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket took off on its first commercial flight on Thursday.

According to Business Insider, all of the boosters returned to Earth safely after the rocket's flight, but one booster toppled over after landing on a platform out at sea.

SpaceX told The Verge, "While we had hoped to bring the booster back intact, the safety of our team always takes precedence.

We do not expect future missions to be impacted."
