For that, it is building a new drone ship that will join two other SpaceX drone ships now floating on the Space Coast. "Just Read The Instructions" is used for Falcon 9 landings after launches from SpaceX's pad at California's Vandenberg Air Force Base.

The ship appears to be named in honor of the fictional spaceship "Experiencing A Significant Gravitas Shortfall" in the science fiction books "Look to Windward" and "Matter" by the late author Iain M. Banks.

Of Course I Still Love You, though, was damaged during the first Falcon Heavy mission that took flight from Kennedy Space Center - the rocket's center core missed the ship by about 300 feet, but the force of its 300 miles per hour water impact was enough to "take out" two engines on the ship.

On Twitter, Musk explained away the crash landing: "Not enough ignition fluid to light the outer two engines after several three engine relights". SpaceX could try to capture a falling Falcon rocket fairing sometime this year, he added.

After leaving university, the politician ran for the leadership unopposed and had served as deputy leader since February 2008. A UUP source said: "Sinn Fein and the DUP are clearly running these talks and the two governments are just bystanders".

On Feb. 6, the Falcon Heavy's maiden launch captured the attention of people everywhere.

"Also includes a Hot Wheels toy model Roadster on the car's dash with a mini-Starman inside, a data storage device placed inside the vehicle contains a copy of Isaac Asimov's 'Foundation, ' A plaque on the attachment fitting between the Falcon Heavy upper stage and the Tesla is etched with the names of more than 6,000 SpaceX employees", the description continued. The rocket leapt off Pad 39A at 3:45pm.

Elon Musk's personal Tesla might have gotten all the headlines during SpaceX's historic rocket launch last week, but the Falcon Heavy also carried a second, secret payload nearly nobody knew about. Only NASA's Saturn V rocket, which carried astronauts to the moon, has lifted more that high.

Meanwhile, NASA has been planning a Space Launch System rocket for Mars missions. SpaceX entrepreneur's rival, Jeff Bezos, is building a heavy-lift rocket through his space company, Blue Origin. The Falcon Heavy core booster for instance missed its sea-based target and pretty much wrecked it in the process.

Last week, SpaceX launched its Falcon Heavy rocket from Cape Canaveral. SpaceX successfully managed to recover the two first stage side boosters of Falcon Heavy as they landed back perfectly on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. In fact, he made an awesome video of SpaceX's failed Falcon 9 booster landings for us to watch in the past.
