SpaceX once again successfully launched two satellites into orbit this morning. It was a routine launch, but beautiful nonetheless. Watch the video:

Unfortunately, the company's attempt to land its rocket on a drone ship in the ocean did not go quite as beautifully. One of the landing engines had a low thrust, which meant the booster came down too hard. SpaceX CEO Elon Musk says the company plans to post the video of the "landing" once they retrieve it off the ship.
