SpaceX's recovered core booster damaged in rough seas

SpaceX's recovered core booster from last week's big launch damaged in rough seas

For the first time, all three first-stage boosters landed upright following Thursday's launch of the company's Falcon Heavy, the most powerful rocket in use. Both side boosters returned to Cape Canaveral, Florida, while the core booster landed on a platform hundreds of miles offshore.

The company confirmed Tuesday that the unsecured core booster toppled onto the platform over the weekend, as waves reached 8 to 10 feet.

Musk says custom devices to secure the booster weren't ready in time for this second flight of the Falcon Heavy.
