The platform was charred, battered from crash landing of a Falcon 9 booster, and after it is moored at the port the charred debris will be unloaded.
The first stage of the rocket was a success, which lifted the dragon capsule to the low Earth orbit to resupply the cargo to International Space Station or ISS. It was also designed such that the rocket will make a controlled descent on the barge which is in Atlantic Ocean, it looked as if the rocket was in control but it has hit the platform very hard, the excess of the lateral movement that was unable to compensate by the rocket engines cause the rocket booster to topple over, and exploding on the surface of the platform.
The ship was moored at the Jacksonville port early Thursday, but it was brought into the dock late, after the darkness has fallen and the tides were advantages in bringing the platform into the dock.
The founder and chief executive of SpaceX, Elon Musk said that JRI only sustained minor damages from the second failure.
The fireball which engulfed the rocket after it wobbled over on its side is par for the course for SpaceX.
The company is experimenting with the rocket recovery system for several months, which would save millions for the company.
But the private company SpaceX and Musk are committed to develop a reliable and reusable rocket system, and they are going to try until they get success.
This would be a great saving for the company.
The next cargo resupply mission is scheduled in June, where the company is going to try again with the rocket recovery system.
