Summary… * Machine-Made


This afternoon, #SpaceX landed the most powerful version yet of its Falcon 9 rocket, after launching the vehicle from Cape Canaveral, Florida.
It was the 25th successful rocket landing for #SpaceX, and the 14th on one of the company’s drone ships.
It also marks the first launch of the Block 5, the vehicle that will carry humans to space for NASA.
It’s usually taken a few months for the same Falcon 9 rocket to fly again.
“The general sentiment will change from… feeling like, ‘A flown rocket is scary,’ to ‘An unflown rocket is scary,’” Musk said.

Opinion… * Man-Made


The plans of #SpaceX are on target to launch the same rocket twice within a 24-hour period sometime in 2019. #Space #Trend
