SpaceX performed another landing of Falcon 9


Second time in a row SpaceX performed successful landing of a reusable first stage.

Traditionally, the landing was made on a floating platform in the sea.

The launch was not experimental. The rocket has brought into orbit a communication satellite JCSAT-14 of Japanese provider company SKY Perfect JSAT Group. So, now we can say that the practical use of Falcon 9 has begun.

The launch took place at the American military base near Cape Canaveral in Florida.

The returned first stage of the rocket can be used repeatedly. It significantly reduces the cost of launching into space, since the first stage is the most expensive component of the rocket.

It is also noteworthy that all foreign media write about “the beginning of real commercial operation”, while Russian ones on “second successful landing”.
