According to him, the first stage fell into the water near the coast and was not injured.

Later it became known that the ship was successfully launched into orbit.

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 first stage rocket had separated normally several minutes after the lift-off, but as it approached the landing site, it started spinning rapidly. It appeared to be undamaged and was transmitting data, Musk said, adding that a recovery ship was sent to retrieve it.

The owner of SpaceX Elon Musk on this occasion, wrote on Twitter that a bad landing caused by a problem with a hydraulic pump.

"We have had a great liftoff", said SpaceX commentator John Insprucker. Unloading the rocket on the ocean's landing platform is a bit screwy, but SpaceX has succeeded in making the Falcon safe in the sea.

The mission lifted off at 10:16 am PST (01:16 p.m. EST), from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. During the landing she lost control and began to spin around its axis.

In spite of this space has created a series of Falcon Rockets. Broadcast of the launch were SpaceX and NASA.

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.
