After launching Spaceflight SSO-A: SmallSat Express to orbit, this Falcon 9 rocket booster completed its third landing this year and SpaceX’s 32nd successful landing to date.
This Falcon 9 rocket booster completed its third launch and landing in six months. Every flight and reflight allows us to validate the rocket’s performance against predictions and maximize reliability on future flights. Rapid rocket reusability is key to reducing costs and enabling large groups of people to travel to space and ultimately live on other planets.
Falcon 9 launches 64 payloads to orbit for the Spaceflight SSO-A: SmallSat Express mission, marking SpaceX’s 19th launch in 2018.
Earlier this month, Falcon 9 landed on the Of Course I Still Love You droneship after launching the Es’hail-2 satellite to orbit. 🌈
