So near yet so far. Not all third times are charms as SpaceX launched NASA's Jason-3 satellite into space. While the launch itself was successful, unlike SpaceX's explosive last NASA mission, it didn't completely end on a happy note as far as the aim to land at sea is concerned, due to a mishap in one of the first stage rocket's legs. Interestingly, CEO Elon Musk doesn't seem at all dismayed, even almost chirpy. Probably because this time, the rocket didn't explode into smithereens.
