SpaceX founder Elon Musk, said:
“Looks like Falcon landed fine, but excess lateral velocity caused it to tip over post landing.”
The SpaceX robotic Dragon capsule is carrying near 2 tons of equipment, including an espresso maker, called the ISSpresso.
If successful, it will prove that affordable, reusable rockets are possible:
Elon Musk said: “reuse rockets just like airplanes, the cost of access to space will be reduced by as much as a factor of a hundred.”
