Video from the recent launch of the SpaceX rocket launch shows its failed attempt to land a booster from the rocket on a platform in the Atlantic Ocean.
It was close, but no cigar.

The rocket ran out of hydraulic fluid minutes before landing, causing it to lose control and come in just short of the floating landing platform.

While this first attempt was not successful, the company says they have at least a dozen more missions planned for 2015.
