And that’s why they call it rocket science

SpaceX has a bold new rocket that promises to revolutionise the cost of getting to space. However, the performance remains entirely traditional – the first one just blew up

As did the first Ariane 5, Ariane 2, Black Arrow, Delta III, Europa, several of the Chinese Long March family, the Indian PSLV, the Soviet moon rocket, and the Titan 3.

Everyone’s first time is a disaster.
