Description

SpaceX successfully landed a rocket at the Kennedy Space Center, where NASA launched the Apollo and Space Shuttle programs. However, the private firm accomplished something NASA never attempted, they landed a reusable rocket-stage at the historic launch pad. On Feb. 19th, a Falcon 9 took off from launch pad 39A. The launch marked the first time the pad had been used since 2011, when the last Shuttle mission launched.

  • SpaceX’s Falcon 9 Will Fail Again?

Even with that success in its pocket, SpaceX is amped to fail again. Round seven1 of rocket versus barge will be the postscript to a launch aiming to inject a Japanese communications satellite 22,300 miles above the equator. Firing something that high requires a lot of oomph.. Which is why Musk is predicting this landing is going to blow. Up. Spectacularly.
