"Appears to be undamaged & is transmitting data".

According to Musk, the rocket could still be re-used as its engines stabilised the spin just in time to ensure an intact landing in water.

The CRS-16 mission launched supplies to the ISS on Wednesday, but the booster headed for the landing pad missed and landed in the water instead, ending SpaceX's flawless record of 12 previous successful landings.

A cargo craft successfully undocked and went into orbit.

"Grid fin hydraulic pump stalled, so Falcon landed just out to sea", SpaceX CEO Elon Musk said in a tweet after the missed landing.

"The first stage did land in the water", SpaceX spokesperson John Insprucker said during a live webcast.

The daughter of the man who penned the holiday classic " Baby, It's Cold Outside " is opening up about recent backlash to the song, which some have said promotes date rape.

Today's incident marks the first time the Falcon has failed to land at designated spot (solid ground) ever since SpaceX began recovering boosters.

Videos swirling across the internet shows that the booster got out of the control as it headed towards the designated landing spot. "All told, another great day for SpaceX and NASA".

Falcon 9 is now the only reusable rocket booster, which is a major selling point for SpaceX.

SpaceX has a contract to ferry American astronauts to the space station as part of what's known as the Commercial Crew program with NASA, but the timeline for the first flights has slipped repeatedly. Through this cargo, Species was sending supplies science experiments and food to astronauts living at the International Space Station.

In September 2014, NASA awarded the two companies a huge $6.8 billion contract to ensure that the United States would continue to send US astronauts to the International Space Station without buying the headquarters of the Russian Soyuz probe.
