SpaceX is ready to launch the 50th launch of the Falcon 9 rocket to deliver the X-37B unmanned vehicle
On March 6, SpaceX is preparing to launch the 50th launch of the Falcon 9 rocket. The Spanish satellite Hispasat is on board. Launch is scheduled with Cape Cape Canaveral (Florida) Air Force.
With a weight of 6 metric tons and the size of a city bus, it will be the largest geostationary satellite that launched the rocket. This is evidenced by the executive director of SpaceX Ilon Musk.
The satellite aims to expand television and telecommunications services in Europe and northwest Africa. For the first time, the Falcon 9 rocket was launched in 2010 and became the workhorse of a Californian company for transporting cargo to the ISS. In addition, the rocket has mastered the technique of safe landing on floating platforms and solid ground. Such re-launches are included in the SpaceX program to reduce the cost of space flight and the reusable use of expensive missile units. But the company said that due to dangerous weather conditions, they would not attempt to land a rocket.
Mask is confidently set to mastering Mars and the 50th launch confirms his sense of purpose. Last month, SpaceX launched a powerful Falcon Heavy rocket, on board of which a Tesla vehicle with a dummy behind the wheel was placed.
