SpaceX Failure to Catch the Nosecone Fairings
On Monday, SpaceX launched a rocket to deploy internet satellite. The satellite will be responsible for providing internet connectivity in the South Pacific Ocean region. The mission went successful but did not match the standard set by SpaceX. The launch, deployment of the satellite into the orbit, and the landing of the booster went successful, according to the plan. But, SpaceX could not execute its plan to catch the nosecone fairings properly. Both the halves missed their target and landed on the ocean.
Experts believe that the nosecone fairings catching is not an easy task, even not for SpaceX; as a result, the mission was difficult to carry out from the beginning. SpaceX revealed the news in its official twitter handle. The company achieved more failure than success in this particular landing. But, the company managed to recover several used nosecones and used them in their further missions. It even recovered some of the nosecones from the ocean and used it after the refurbish.
SpaceX revealed that currently, it is searching the two halves in the deep ocean. The organization is hopeful of recovering those, and use them in future missions. Though the salty water of the ocean might damage some of the sensitive components of the rocket, the company is confident to refurbish them again.
