SpaceX pokes fun at itself by creating explosive blooper reel of rocket booster failures


The success rate of SpaceX continues to improve. Elon Musk’s company is showing off cool, new space suits, and it keeps on launching and reusing Falcon 9 rockets.

But not everything has always been perfect with SpaceX, and Musk knows that better than anybody. That apparently is why the company released a supercut video (or, more accurately, a blooper reel) of SpaceX equipment exploding into flames in a video titled, “How Not to Land an Orbital Rocket Booster.”

It’s informative, it’s kind of funny (especially with that background music), and it shows some really cool (and probably really expensive) explosions. And hopefully for SpaceX, it’s all completely in the past.
