SpaceX manages to get Falcon 9 rocket on offshore platform countries




After four failed attempts we managed to get the Falcon 9 rocket successfully on an offshore platform countries. This SpaceX shows that it is able to let the missile both on land and at sea countries.

Landing on the drone ship called ‘Of Course I Still Love You “on Twitter by SpaceX confirmed and can be seen on video . The launch of the missile took place Friday from Cape Canaveral in Florida. The purpose of the launch was to deliver in the context of the CRS-8 mission the Dragon space capsule with different equipment on board the International Space Station. On board was the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module, which should expand the space station. Another important goal was to re-attempt a landing at sea.

The last landing failed in early March, then gave SpaceX beforehand to expect any success. The company recently stated that it intends to take place a third of all landings on the mainland and the rest on the sea, writes The Verge. Because it takes less fuel for a landing on an offshore platform, allows more fuel to be used for example to carry heavier materials or to choose a different, higher orbit. Even more important is that higher speeds can be realized by such a landing.

SpaceX now has proved that it can bring a successful rocket back to Earth, this means that it can significantly bring down the cost of launches. The rockets landed are too set in again, allowing the converted 53 million for a new missile not need to be issued.
