Musk is the chief of SpaceX, which has been launching reusable rocket booster, and like all companies, SpaceX went through its share of growing pains.

Now, the company has released a "blooper reel" of its many attempted landings that ended in spectacular style. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.

SpaceX achieved its first successful landing in December 2015, but it was far from smooth sailing with several of the costly mishaps featured in the video occurring in 2016.

Elon Musk eventually became the first man in the world, who could land a rocket on a floating platform.

The many fans of SpaceX expressed admiration for the company and Musk in comments on YouTube for sharing the video showing the landing failures, something companies don't ordinarily do. Others are bit more editorial, with bon mots like "It's just a scratch", "Well, technically it did land ..."

Set to John Philip Sousa's rousing march "The Liberty Bell", the two-minute video posted Thursday shows rockets exploding at sea and over land. "We messed up a lot before it finally worked, but there's some epic explosion footage ..."

While the video highlights the unsuccessful attempts, that's not to say that SpaceX hasn't made any successful landings.

"Long road to reusability of Falcon 9 primary boost stage", Musk said in the tweet.

In that same time, SpaceX has completed 16 successful Falcon 9 first stage landings.

Musk added a little recap to the video with his Instagram caption as well.
