Watch SpaceX rocket's nose cone miss the boat, again

 
As the old adage goes, if at first you don't succeed, try, try again. 
SpaceX made another attempt at catching a rocket's fairing (a protective nose cone), using a boat dubbed Mr. Steven. 
Poor Mr. Steven. Maybe he's got butter fingers, according to a video posted by SpaceX on Tuesday. The fairing just slipped off the boat's net. In a tweet, SpaceX said this was "one of Mr. Steven's final West Coast fairing recovery tests before shipping out for the East Coast."
This isn't the first time the fairing has literally missed the boat. The last game of catch was earlier in January. 
SpaceX wants to nab rocket fairings so it can reuse them. The company didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
