In pics: SpaceX successfully lands spy mission Falcon 9 rocket after launch
SpaceX on May 1 successfully landed Falcon 9 rocket on solid ground again. The SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket lifted off from Cape Canaveral, Florida delivering the NROL-76 satellite to orbit as well as some other classified payload for the National Reconnaissance Office. The vehicle’s first stage — the 14-story core of the rocket that contains the main engines — touched down at the company’s landing pad called Landing Zone 1, located just off the coast of the Cape. It’s the fourth time SpaceX has landed one of its rockets on land, and the 10th time the company has successfully recovered a rocket post-launch.
