SpaceX lost the central block of the first missile stage Falcon Heavy — Rambler News Service


The SpaceX team could not bring the central block of the first missile stage Falcon Heavy to Canaveral port because of weather conditions, reports the The Verge portal with reference to the official statement of the company. High waves led to the fact that the central accelerator was lost in the Atlantic Ocean. "In process of deterioration in weather conditions wave height began to increase from 2.5 to 3 meters. The carrier rocket began to heel and could not remain in vertical position. We hoped to return a step to integrity, but safety of team always is in a priority. This case will not influence further missile launches" — said in SpaceX. Also it is noted that problems with stability of a step were aggravated because of incompatibility of the special robot under the name Octagrabber designed to hold a step on a storm case, with the modified Falcon Heavy step. On April 12 SpaceX reported about the first successful commercial start of Falcon Heavy which put the Saudi communication satellite Arabsat 6A to orbit. After start for the first time it was succeeded to return side accelerators and the central step to Earth. But if side accelerators landed in a landing zone on Cape Canaveral, then the central step had to be put on floating platform where an incident occurred.
