In the future, they will adapt the system for the Falcon Heavy's next mission launch. But because the Falcon 9 booster used in the makeup of Falcon Heavy was modified, upgrades to the octograbber were not complete when it was most needed. (SpaceX) Despite the struggles of the center core, side boosters B1052 (right) and B1053 (left) are safe and sound, awaiting their next launch.
The most powerful operational rocket in the world, the Falcon Heavy, has lost its center core booster to the Atlantic Ocean.
"Over the weekend, due to rough sea conditions, SpaceX's recovery team was unable to secure the center core booster for its return trip to Port Canaveral", SpaceX said in a statement to the outlet.
The booster landed on a platform off the coast of Florida after the rocket's successful launch on Thursday. In the only previous Falcon Heavy mission to date, this booster missed the drone ship completely and slammed into the sea, so SpaceX is still making progress. The fairings splashed down in the ocean as well, and were quickly scooped up by SpaceX, so it seems the company is confident it can negate the effects of seawater on at least some of its pricey rocket parts.
SpaceX landed a very big fish but was unable to reel it in.
SpaceX's first successful commercial mission came off nearly without a hitch last week. 'Three for three boosters today for the Falcon Heavy'.
