The Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX) attempted to send a home-grown space shuttle into orbital space, but during the second stage of it's trajectory through space the Falcon 1 started to spin. The company says it was likely that no fuel could reach the engine because of such. The Falcon 1 reached an altitude of approximately 200 miles into space, but failed to achieve its goal of orbiting the Earth.
