Last weekend, SpaceX successfully used this rocket to launch the Dragon capsule into space to deliver supplies to the International Space Station. But the company attempted to land the rocket on a drone ship in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. It was the first time they attempted to land on a barge, and as you can see, things didn't go as planned.

Musk suggests on his Twitter account that the crash might be due to the rocket running out of hydraulic fluid.
