since it missed the landing pad and ended up in the ocean I suspect that it was cheaper for elon to have the air force destroy it (at tax payers expense) than it was for him to pay to have it towed back to shore.
it`s always about money, the tax payers pay to have it sunk and destroyed and elon saves money by not having to tow it back to shore. it`s probably cheaper for him to build a new one than it is for him to have one that has been submerged in saltwater and suffered structural stress cracks towed back to shore and refurbished. isn`t elon and tesla the king of government subsidies?
it`s always about money.ALWAYS!
