SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket will go down in history as the evolution of spaceflight. This critical milestone is eventually achieved by Elon Musk’s SpaceX.
Trying and doing one thing over and over might bore you unless you belong to SpaceX. For about two years, the company had been busied in test landing of its rocket and bringing it back. Now, in the fullness of time, SpaceX has shot off its first Orbital SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket and carried the SES 10 Satellite into orbit before it successfully lands as the first momentous re-flight in the history of spaceflight. This is the most significant surge in its bid to lower down the cost and boost up the speed of spaceflight rockets. Hence, this far-reaching achievement will prove to be a catalyst in the progress of long-term plan of SpaceX of shaping the rocket launches as cost-efficient and approachable for corporate sector and government. This seems like many more ground-breaking projects of SpaceX are in the pipeline to further boggle the mind of the world like the final trip to Mars.
Noticeably, this orbital rocket was first time launched last year as the first Falcon 9 rocket that landed to SpaceX autonomous drone ship in the ocean and shot off from there. Since then SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket had been underway an avalanche of testing to make sure its readiness for a successful flight again.
Elon Musk’s Idea To Economize the Space Flights In Long Term
Elon Musk’s vision is to give power to fully reusable rocket so that they could slash the cost of going into space. This is no more a fancy flight because Musk has proved it by launching SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket and successfully landed it back. However, Blue Origin has also made the massive investment for reusable rocket and tested a few lot of rocket launches but could not reach as far as orbits. It requires a hefty amount of dollar to engineer a rocket that after its mission will permanently be lost to the waves for its inability of serving as the reusable rocket.
The SpaceX President Says:
“We’re not the one-way trip to Mars people, we want to make sure people can come back,” explained SpaceX president Gwen Shotwell in a pre-launch interview. “And that means you need a reusable rocket system.” She further said that eventually, the goal is to land and re-launch on the same day — the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket used here took about four months to repurpose for reuse”, she revealed.
Musk’s This Year Plan:
Musk unfolded his plan of launching six more in line rocket launches this year after this remarkable success of SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket. These upcoming rockets will serve the same reusable purpose to slash the cost of engineering a rocket. Two recycled rockets are likely to be consumed as a side boosters for SpaceX enormous and weight-lift rockets “Falcon Heavy” which is reported to all set to travel to the orbit this summer.
“The booster that flew Thursday, however, will be given as a gift to Cape Canaveral since it has “historical significance,” Musk said.
