Steven has a net for catching rocket parts.

As the old saying goes, if you do not succeed in the beginning, try it, try again.

SpaceX again attempted to capture the shell of a rocket (a protective nose cone), with a boat called Mr. Steven.

Poor Mr. Steven. Maybe he has butter fingers, according to a video posted by SpaceX on Tuesday. The tub simply slipped from the net of the boat.

In a tweet, SpaceX said that this was "one of the last rescue tests for West Steven's Steven's recovery before he was shipped to the east coast."

This is not the first time that the cock literally missed the boat. The last catch was earlier in January.

SpaceX wants to pursue rocket power caps so that it can reuse them. Founder Elon Musk has long worked on ways to reuse missiles as a means to make launches cheaper and faster. In December, SpaceX used one of them some boosters for a third time. The company also has plans to divest 10 percent of its workforce.
