SpaceX achieved a great feat in a different way than it could have been done. A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket toting 15 Starlink satellites to orbit early today on July 20 and reappeared down for a landing on a designated ship at the ocean.

The Falcon 9 blasted off oddly from murky California Vandenberg Space Force Base on Thursday at 12:09 a.m. EDT (0409 GMT; 9:09 p.m. on July 19 local California time). The Falcon 9 was supposed to lift off on early Wednesday, July 19, but the team decided to call off the lift-off after getting a warning from the rocket’s upper stage.

The Falcon 8 alighted from the ground without any serious signups on Thursday morning, as the team imagined the first stage of the Rocket wafted across the environment and, with a slight noise, landed on the ship.

This is what you must know about the Falcon 9

The booster sped up its vertical touchdown on the SpaceX drone ship “Of Course I Still Love You” approximately 9.5 minutes after the Rocket got blasted off. Notably, it marks the 10th liftoff and landing for the particular Booster.

The upper stage of the Falcon 9 has never stopped carrying the 15 Starlink spacecraft to Low Earth Orbit. The satellites were supposed to be deployed there after 15 minutes of launch, and SpaceX officials have confirmed that the deployment occurred successfully. Thursday’s liftoff was SpaceX’s 48th orbital mission of the year, Luppen said.

Starlink is SpaceX’s cluster of broadband satellites, which compiles 4,450 operational spacecraft in LEO, according to astrophysicist and satellite tracker Jonathan McDowell. There is no stepping back in that numbers; the number will continue to soar up high. SpaceX has already been granted to sky parlor 12,000 Starlink satellites. The company also applied for incredible approval to deploy another 30,000.
