You know, you really are a filthy piece of lying shit. Musk has achieved major milestones in making rockets that are far less costly to operate than previously. SpaceX lands another one of its Falcon 9 rockets on solid ground SpaceX has landed yet another one of its Falcon 9 rockets after launching the vehicle into space this afternoon. The rocket took off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, at 12:31PM ET, bound for the International Space Station. Around eight minutes after takeoff, the majority of the vehicle landed back on solid ground off the Florida coast. It marks the 14th successful rocket landing for SpaceX, and the sixth time a Falcon 9 has successfully touched on solid ground post-launch. In fact, SpaceX has yet to lose a rocket during a ground landing. The company has lost a few vehicles during ocean landings, when the rockets attempted to touch down on autonomous drone ships at sea. But all six Falcon 9s that have landed on solid ground have touched down just fine at SpaceX’s Landing Zone 1 — a ground-based landing site at Cape Canaveral. SPACEX HAS YET TO LOSE A ROCKET DURING A GROUND LANDING Today’s launch was the first for SpaceX in over a month. The brief hiatus was partly due to a temporary closure of the Eastern Range — the areas on the East Coast that support rocket launches. The sites at Cape Canaveral underwent some maintenance last month, and there have not been any launches out of the United States since SpaceX’s previous mission to the ISS in early July.
