 SpaceX completed fifteenth launches this year and reached new milestones.


NetEase news on August 7th, according to foreign media, according to foreign media reports, 1:18 a.m. east time in the United States, space exploration technology company SpaceXs Falcon 9 rocket launches, successfully put a Indonesia satellite into orbit, this is its fifteenth launch mission this year, and the companys rocket re use the rocket. Another milestone.

ElonMusks SpaceX company reused the recycled rocket booster in less than three months to lift PTTelkomIndonesias commercial satellite from Florida. This marks the first time that SpaceX has booed the booster of Falcon 9 rocket Block5. It is reported that Block5s rocket boosters can be used up to 10 times, and only a small amount of maintenance is needed between different launches.

At 1:18 a.m. local time, the Falcon 9 rocket took off from the 40 space launch center of Cape Canaveral Air Force base.

About eight minutes after launch, Falcon 9s first stage booster landed on an unmanned ship in the Atlantic called Of course I still love you.

The rocket sent the geostationary communications satellite MerahPutih to its intended orbit. After about 32 minutes of launch, the satellite will provide services to Indonesia and other parts of Southeast Asia.

The total number of SpaceX launches is about 30 this year, up from a record 18 in 2017. Musk said before seeing Block 5 in May after the first Falcon 9 launch that he would like to use the same booster to launch twice in 24 hours next year. The launch is the companys fifteenth annual launch using a previously used rocket booster, flight-proven. Repeated use of boosters instead of scrapping them after each use - and only a small amount of maintenance between two launches - may significantly reduce the cost of space flight. SpaceXs progress in this pursuit has prompted the company to become one of the most valuable venture capital start-ups in the United States.
