The latest SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket has landed with a sickening crunch.

However, its latest effort has ended in failure.

Musk appears to be in positive mood about SpaceX's year so far, though.

It's also worth mentioning that this latest flight was successful in its primary mission, which was to launch two satellites into geostationary orbit around the Earth.

Indeed, it's the nature of this mission that likely accounts for the failed landing.

This means that they require more fuel to attain, which means there's less wriggle room during a hotter-than-normal landing.
