  • Rocket carrying Argentinian satellite takes off successfully

Another milestone for the SpaceX chief Elon Musk - "the Falcon has landed".

Until that time, enjoy the pics released by SpaceX showing last weekend's launch in California.

SpaceX has launched Falcon 9 rocket carrying an Argentina Earth-observation satellite which is into space on Sunday. Just eight minutes later, the first (and reusable) part of the rocket returned to the facility, landing successfully.

The rocket is now scheduled to launch at 7:21 p.m. local time, carry the SAOCOM 1A satellite into space, and return to Earth shortly afterward. Since the night sky was absolutely clear, without a single shred of cloud, the Falcon's show was on full display.

According to mwananchi.co.tz , the youthful tycoon was kidnapped at around 5am from Collessium Hotel as he worked out in a gym. According to eyewitnesses, unknown men arrived in two vehicles and parked at the hotel before Mr Dewji got there.

Yesterday's SpaceX launch was a success, creating incredible scenes in the skies of California and all across social media. This will save the time as the rocket will not travelling much for the launch site and this will help the company to reuse the same in less time. Although this one is the first landing on California's solid ground, even before this, the company had managed to land its rockets on the land. Until now, all landings of the company founded by Elon Musk had taken place on Florida's Cape Canaveral or offshore platforms.

A spectacle Californians will have to get used to, as the private space company will probably conduct more launches from Vandenberg, with three Falcons planned to launch in November.

In the Network published a timelapse video with the launch of the Falcon 9 rocket with a telecommunications satellite on Board. SLC-4, which was originally the home of Originally Titan missiles, is essentially two launch sites in one.
