Last night, our Dragon spacecraft was launched to the International Space Station with critical science and cargo for NASA, and we landed our Falcon rocket back on land.

Dragon has been deployed into a good orbit and will attach to the International Space Station in about 2 days. The Falcon 9 first stage landed back at Landing Zone 1 at Cape Canaveral.

Good job Space X on your secound "Land" landing of your Falcon 9 first stage. This make 5 reusable rockets that we hope to see used in future launchs.

If only they could make higher legs with similar weight & strength these landings would not fail I don't think unless the F9 came in real hard & fast. More than twice the F9 lands but the legs couldn't hold it up. Surely having the legs so low means much more force is exerted on it by the sheer weight of the rocket and to balance it is that much harder. More legs may also help but the problem is weight. Keep up the great work SpaceX!!!

So inspiring!
I see SpaceX igniting the passion in our youth that encouraged us to reach for the Moon. We have our space program back!
SpaceX launches at a fraction of what it used to cost. A salute to the efficiency of private enterprise, the vision and tenacity of Elon Musk and of the SpaceX team!
"Only a few countries have achieved spaceflight. It has always been a Country thing, not a company thing."

This guy, he identifies technology that needs to evolve and inserts himself as the catalyst.
The industries he has dragged into the future are Banking, Solar energy, batteries, automotive and aerospace.
Major innovations in any one of them would be the apex accomplishment of a lifetime.
I would very much like to meet him and shake his hand. He is changing our world, because "the man does not take no for an answer."
The Russians laughed at this guy with big dreams when he wanted to buy engines from them. He walked out of the room. They are not laughing anymore.
Lead on Elon!

In 2017, Crew Dragon, the crew-carrying version of the upgraded Dragon 2 spacecraft, will restore the United States’ capability to fly humans to orbit.

The backbone of Dragon 2 is a metallic welded pressure vessel. SpaceX has completed manufacturing of the first two pressure vessels to be used for ground testing, and is currently manufacturing two Crew Dragon flight articles. The pressure vessel is the primary structure of the spacecraft that protects astronauts during ascent, while in outer space, and during entry and landing to provide a safe and controlled environment in which to travel and work.

Here is a picture of the first test article undergoing structural load testing. This demonstrates the spacecraft’s ability to withstand the tremendous forces it’s exposed to during space flight.

When we transport astronauts on Crew Dragon to the International Space Station next year, it will be within one of these pressure vessels that over the coming months will turn into a fully functional spacecraft.

Falcon 9 successfully delivered THAICOM 8 to a Super Synchronous Transfer Orbit, with a high orbit of 91,000km. Orbital ATK has confirmed the spacecraft has acquired signal.

The first stage also landed successfully on our Of Course I Still Love You droneship in the Atlantic.

Story
Tagline
SpaceX designs, manufactures and launches the world’s most advanced rockets and spacecraft.
Introduction

SpaceX designs, manufactures and launches the world’s most advanced rockets and spacecraft. The company was founded in 2002 by Elon Musk to revolutionize space transportation, with the ultimate goal of making life multiplanetary. In 2010, SpaceX became the first commercial company in history to send a spacecraft into orbit and return it safely to Earth. In May 2012, SpaceX again made history when its Dragon spacecraft became the first commercial vehicle to successfully attach to the International Space Station, something previously accomplished only by governments.  In October 2012 and March 2013, Dragon again successfully delivered cargo to and from the space station in its first two official cargo resupply missions for NASA.
