SpaceX is experimenting with recovering their Falcon 9 rocket stages in hopes of reducing the cost of space launches. The upper stage successfully took the unmanned Dragon supply ship with supplies and science to the International Space Station but as you can see below the first stage landing attempt was a fail. This second such attempt was better but the rocket tipped over moments after touching down on the barge parked in the Atlantic Ocean 200 miles east of Jacksonville, Florida. SpaceX says the first stage did not survive the landing.
