A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket landed at sea Wednesday after a stabilizer fin problem prevented a conventional landing.

The first stage then began descending towards Landing Zone 1 (LZ-1) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. "Ships en route to rescue Falcon", he wrote. It appeared to be undamaged and was transmitting data, Musk said, adding that a recovery ship was sent to retrieve it.

While the Dragon capsule is now on its way to the ISS, the rocket's spent first stage rocket failed to land properly at its designated "Landing Zone 1" pad along the Cape Canaveral coast.

SpaceX spokesperson John Insprucker said that the team will use the telemetry from the first-stage booster to find out the reason behind the failed landing.

The launch itself was a success, but landing the rocket for reuse didn't go as planned.

Through this cargo, Species was sending supplies science experiments and food to astronauts living at the International Space Station. The mission was also historic because it involved a booster making its third successful landing.
