    No. That was just the rocket engine, attempting to land on a floating platform after sending a spacecraft up to dock with the International Space Station. The goal is to safely land the rocket engine so that it can be reused, something that hasnt been done before, and one of the major reasons space travel is so expensive.

    Yes. And got pretty damn close to doing it. Supposedly they know what went wrong, and are fixing it and will try again in a few weeks.


    Heres a video of a test flight done last year.
