SpaceX successfully launches satellite days after another rocket crashes in Texas

SpaceX successfully launches satellite days after another rocket crashes in Texas
NASA says Falcon 9 took off from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Broward County, Florida at 12:30 p.m. This marks the rocket’s 25th flight this year, NASA said.

About 10 minutes after posting a video of the liftoff on his Twitter feed, he tweeted that the first stage booster of the SpaceX rocket had landed on a drone called Just Read the Instructions in the Atlantic Ocean.

The booster disassembles after ascent and performs a flip maneuver, allowing the drone to use its engines and “grid wings” to make a smooth landing.

SpaceX says the reusable booster has been recovered seven times.

The same goes for first stage rocket booster support Crew DragonOf the first plane International Space Station, Canadian Space Agency’s Radarsat Constellation Mission to deploy Earth-observation satellites and Four launches for Starlink, SpaceX initiative to provide satellite internet access, the company said.

Sunday Recovery The company said it had recovered the Falcon 9 first-stage booster for the 69th time.

Just after 1pm, SpaceX tweeted that the latest payload of the SXM-7 satellite rocket had been successfully deployed for the Sirius XM.

The successful mission comes four days after SpaceX’s steel rocket prototype, Starship SN8 CEO Elon Musk Hopes will one day be useful to take humans to Mars, Crashed while trying to land Similar to the ones the Falcon 9 boosters successfully performed.

The StarShip SN8 took off from South Texas on Wednesday before exploding on the ground just before heading back to launch site over the Gulf of Mexico.

“Low pressure in the fuel header tank during the landing burn led to a high touchdown speed, resulting in a rough (and exciting!) Landing,” SpaceX said in a statement.

After returning from an alien mission, the Starship SN8 requested Space‌X data on how it could re-enter Earth’s atmosphere and guide itself to the exact landing point. Musk succeeded in this mission.

“The fuel header tank pressure was low during the landing burn, so the touchdown speed was high & RUD, but we got all the data we needed!” He said in a tweet.

RUD means “fast unscheduled disassembly” – a fantastic way to say “crash”.
