BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. – Beachgoers on the coast were treated to a rare and historic sight Sunday as SpaceX intentionally destroyed a rocket.
The test is the final step SpaceX must take to certify its spacecraft to fly NASA astronauts, possibly later this year.
During the launch, the Falcon 9 boosters exploded in a grand fashion.
Now, the office of the Brevard County Emergency Management is warning those on the beach to be aware of debris that may wash ashore.
