Watch The Spectacular SpaceX Rocket Launch As Boosters Return To Earth In Tandem

Posted by in categories: alien life, military, satellites

The world’s second-most powerful rocket—though it’s largest partially renewable rocket—yesterday blasted-off on a secret mission for the US Space Force amid spectacular views. Only the fifth flight of the company’s heavy-life Falcon Heavy rocket (though the second inside a few months), the event took place in twilight Sunday, with a satellite being successfully sent into geosynchronous Earth orbit (meaning it will orbit at the same speed as Earth rotates). Two side-boosters then returned to land in tandem on launch pads.

They were the 163th and 164th successful landings of an orbital-class rocket, according to SpaceX.

The mission, called USSF-67, took a communications satellite into orbit for the US military.

It blasted off from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at Kennedy Space Center in Florida at 5:56 p.m. ET with the side-boosters returning minutes later to two adjacent launch pads in Cape Canaveral.
