The SpaceX rocket landed on the landing pad, floating in the Atlantic Ocean, on Friday, despite the speed of entry into the atmosphere twice as high.
The rocket launched a TV broadcast satellite into orbit a height greater than the ISS orbit by 20,000 miles. During the last Falcon-9 mission in April, the rocket sent a freighter to a station 250 miles above the Earth’s surface.
"The rocket re-entered the atmosphere much faster than last time," wrote the SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk on Twitter before landing.
“Whohoo !!”, wrote Musk a few minutes later.
This is the third successful landing SpaceX. In December, the Falcon rocket landed on an Air Force landing pad at Cape Canaveral.
Thanks to a successful flight on Friday, SpaceX intends to increase the frequency of flight to one flight in three weeks. According to the schedule, the company plans another 70 launches for more than $ 10 billion.
