Elon Musk could be the only person in the world who could create a video like this and actually be cool about it, but I guess this is just the cost of doing business when you’re trying to sell your reusable space rockets to NASA. Then again this blooper reel is almost the epitome of the famous Elon Musk quote: “Failure is an option here. If things are not failing, you are not innovating enough.”
SpaceX landed its first reusable Falcon 9 rocket on the “droneship” in 2016 and earlier this year it achieved its first successful reflight, which the company described as a major milestone on the road to full and rapid rocket reusability.
