SpaceX just failed in its third attempt to make history.
On Sunday morning it tried and failed to retrieve one of its Falcon 9 rockets, the CRS-7, after a supply mission to the ISS, which would have made it the first reusable rocket ever. But just a few minutes after takeoff, two minutes and 14 seconds to be precise, the rocket exploded into tons of pieces. It was traveling about 1 kilometer per second at an altitude of 40 kilometers.
“The vehicle has broken up,” NASA confirmed on its live stream of the event.
