BREAKING: DRAGON rocket fails to reach orbit after launch this morning...
SpaceX's Webcast announcer reported the problem as follows: "It appears that, although it achieved Earth orbit, Dragon is experiencing some kind of problem right now. According to procedures, we expect a press conference to be held within a few hours from now. At that time, further information may be available. This will bring us to the conclusion of our live Webcast for today."

One out of 4 thruster pods is working now.

SpaceX says one thruster pod is working, and two are "preferred" to deploy solar arrays. Four thruster pods are on the Dragon spacecraft.

"We are working to bring up the other two in order to plan the next series of burns to get to station," a SpaceX spokesperson says.

Great News!

Comment From Giuseppe De Chiara:

The solar panels deployment means also that Dragon spacecraft has full power to run properly all its S/S and this fact alone increase the probability to recover the issue and save the mission as well

Like Apollo 13, SpaceX is proving that it can have problems and overcome problems and move forward without any harm.
