The upper stage of the first stage super-heavy launch vehicle, the Falcon Heavy sank during transportation to the Florida coast. About it writes The Verge.
According to the representative of the company, due to weather conditions and storm the first stage are unable to stand on the platform and fell into the water. It is noted that the company has already attempted to save the Central unit, but ultimately refused it because of security reasons.
“Last weekend because of rough sea conditions, the SpaceX team are unable to provide delivery of the Central unit in port Canaveral, — told in the company. With the deteriorating weather conditions, the block started to slide and it failed to align. We don’t think this will affect future missions.”
12 APR 2019 took place the first commercial launch of the Falcon Heavy. The media has put into orbit the Saudi communications satellite Arabsat 6A. Then for the first time managed to land all three stages of the rocket.
