SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket makes history

December 22, 2015

The first rocket to launch and successfully land.

SpaceX, founded by Elon Musk, successfully landed its Falcon 9 rocket after delivering 11 ORBCOMM satellites it placed in orbit.

This marks the first time in history where a rocket was successfully launched and then landed without any problems. If this method proves to be true, then that could mean that the prices for space trips could be lessened and be made more affordable.

This was the first successful landing or the Falcon 9 rocket. An earlier Falcon 9 rocket was launched on June 28 but quickly exploded after lifting off.
