A strange for you, the Russian Polyus spacecraft strapped to a Energia rocket. The Polyus was prototype orbital weapons platform designed to destroy satellites with a megawatt carbon-dioxide laser. It was launched on May 15, 1987 and would ultimately fail to reach orbit.⠀

The moment the Mercury-Redstone 1 capsule's escape rocket jettisoned after its infamous "four-inch flight". Three seconds later, the Mercury capsule deployed its drogue, main and reserve parachutes. It is without doubt one of the weirder launch failures in the history of spaceflight.⠀

50 years ago, the Apollo 11 Saturn V arrived at Pad 39A for two months of pad processing. During this time, a complete checkout of the rocket, a countdown demonstration test, and a fueling test were conducted in preparation for its launch on July 16, 1969. ⠀

On-board footage of a Falcon 9 touchdown really doesn't ever get old. This one is from the THAICOM 8 mission in 2016. The venting and the fins folding down at the end makes it even better.⠀
