SpaceX hopeful despite rocket crash-landing

(CNN) — A SpaceX experiment did not go as planned. The company recently sent a rocket to the International Space Station for a supply mission.

The goal was to have the rocket come back to earth in one piece and then reuse it for future missions. That was not the case. A section of the SpaceX rocket crashed on what was supposed to be a soft landing on a platform in the Atlantic Ocean Saturday. Company officials plan on testing other rockets. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
