SpaceX successfully launches a Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida, as part of boosting its Dragon spacecraft into space for a Monday arrival at the ISS in the SpaceX CRS-5 resupply mission. However, an experimental recovery attempt of the first stage fails when it crash-lands on a floating platform possibly due to insufficient hydraulic fluid, resulting in damage to the platform. The state of the destruction of the launch vehicle is publically unknown.
SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket blasted the company's Dragon cargo capsule toward the International Space Station Saturday morning (Jan. 10) — and then came back to Earth for a dramatic and highly anticipated landing attempt.

SpaceX launches a Falcon 9 Full Thrust rocket at Cape Canaveral, Florida, to supersynchronous orbit an Airbus-built communications satellite SES-11 for Luxembourg-based SES, and EchoStar 105 for U.S.-headquartered EchoStar. It's the third time when a Falcon 9 first stage is re-used. 2017-10-11 (Context: Cape Canaveral, Florida, SpaceX, experimental recovery attempt)
SpaceX launches a weather observation satellite, Deep Space Climate Observatory, at 6:03 p.m. EST from Cape Canaveral, Florida (for the US Air Force-NASA-NOAA), but postpones making of a second attempt to land a Falcon 9 v1.1 rocket on a floating platform called the autonomous spaceport drone ship, following the January 10 failure during the SpaceX CRS-5 mission. SpaceX instead, attempts a "mock" soft-landing into the Atlantic ocean 2015-02-11 (Context: Florida, SpaceX, SpaceX CRS-5)
SpaceX delays the launch of a Falcon 9 rocket from Kennedy Space Center in Florida due to a technical issue. The Falcon 9 will resupply the International Space Station. 2017-02-18 (Context: Florida, SpaceX)
SpaceX believes that the September 1 Florida launch pad malfunction and explosion of its Falcon 9 rocket and the Facebook payload during routine preparation was likely due to a large breach in its upper-stage oxygen tank's helium system. 2016-09-23 (Context: Florida, SpaceX)
