SpaceX to launch Falcon 9 rocket from Kennedy Space Center

In addition to delivering the satellite, the Falcon 9 had a secondary mission of attempting to land the rocket's first-stage on the "Of Course I Still Love You" drone ship, positioned in the Atlantic Ocean.

The 229-foot-tall (70-meter) launcher reached an altitude of more than 40 miles (65 kilometers) in two-and-a-half minutes, then the Falcon 9's first stage shut down and separated, leaving an upper stage engine to continue firing to propel the rocket and its payload to the velocity needed to enter orbit.

The lower part of the Falcon 9 first stage seems to have caught fire during the landing. It is unveiled that the cause of the explosion was rupturing of cold helium pressure vessel in the second stage of the rocket.

The SpaceX rocket for the Koreasat-5 was on Launch Pad 39A Sunday evening and ready to go on Monday.
