Elon Musk unveils SpaceX's newest drone ship for rocket landings at sea

The drone fleet used by SpaceX to catch falling rockets now has a third autonomous ship, whimsically called "A Shortfall of Gravitas."

Founder Elon Musk unveiled the newest floating rocket landing pad on Twitter Friday (July 9) along with a dramatic video from a flying drone circling the ship.

"Autonomous SpaceX drone ship, A Shortfall of Gravitas," Musk wrote succinctly in the post. The drone ship is fully automated with no tugboat required to take it out into the Atlantic Ocean nearby SpaceX's typical launch site at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, he added in another tweet.
