SpaceX, the private aerospace manufacturer and space transportation company founded by Elon Musk, is renowned for its groundbreaking launches and missions. Over the years, SpaceX has achieved numerous milestones, including reusable rocket technology and transporting astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS).
Here, we delve into the fascinating world of SpaceX launches, from the preparation to the execution and the captivating photos that document these extraordinary events.
In another stunning display, SpaceX demonstrated its prowess in photographing a rocket launch. This time, they successfully launched 15 Starlink satellites into orbit, further expanding their broadband mega constellation. The Falcon 9 rocket took off from SpaceX’s Vandenberg Space Force Base facilities at 12:09 a.m. EDT on June 20 (0409 GMT, 9:09 p.m., July 19, local California time).
Remarkably, this was the 10th liftoff for the same booster, marking an impressive feat of reusability. Moreover, it marked the 48th successful launch for SpaceX this year alone. Approximately 9.5 minutes after liftoff, the rocket’s first stage achieved yet another milestone by safely landing on SpaceX’s autonomous drone ship, “Of Course I Still Love You,” stationed in the Pacific Ocean.
