I found the rocket ship and got the in-game achievement but didn't get the site achievement.
I might be wrong but I believe that that kind of thing happens if you are on a spotty internet connection. Thankfully all the achievements in this game are very easy to get so it shouldn't be a problem to go grab it again. Sorry about that but more than likely it was your ISP or some outside factor that caused you not to get the medal on the site.
Fun and challenging
I'm up to 79 without any hints... this is getting tough
Where did the medals go?!
