NASA And SpaceX Successful Launch

It’s not every day a rocket blasts off into space, even more rare is a rocket being relaunched into space. SpaceX this past week accomplished this task for NASA for the first time. Previously Falcon 9 rockets have been used multiple times, but NASA had not taken part until they were sure it was able to successfully relaunch. And so a reused rocket launched a reused capsule carrying supplies for the International Space Station this week just in time for Christmas.

 

 

And it was a complete success as they once again were able to recover their rocket.

 

 

The rocket launched on Friday (Dec. 15) and then Today (Dec. 17) the Cargo Vehicle was captured by the space station.

 

 

SpaceX has managed to make space travel less expensive than it used to be when every piece of a rocket had to be rebuilt for a launch, though it has not been without it’s bumps – most notably the explosion on the launch pad in September, 2016. But this was their 20th successful recapture of a rocket and bodes well for future missions with NASA.
