Battered SpaceX Falcon Heavy booster knocked over at sea returns to Port Canaveral

This Thursday, April 11, 2091 image from video made available by SpaceX shows a Falcon rocket booster shortly after landing on a barge in the Atlantic Ocean off Florida. On Tuesday, April 16, the company confirmed that the unsecured core booster toppled onto the platform over the weekend, as waves reached 8 to 10 feet. SpaceX chief Elon Musk says custom devices to secure the booster weren’t ready in time for this second flight of the Falcon Heavy. (SpaceX via AP) NY320 NY320
