SpaceX experienced their first landing failure of a Falcon 9 since 2016! So what went wrong? What kept everyone safe? Is there a big risk of a failed rocket landing on people?
Today we'll mostly be looking at the CRS-16 landing failure and using it as an example as what systems are on board, what programming is used and how the flight termination system works to keep us on the ground safe.
We'll dive into the details of its landing sequence by looking at it's exact trajectory using http://flightclub.io and I'll be explaining what exactly happened using Kerbal Space Program to simulate the failed grid fins.
