SpaceX Begins a Day With Two Falcon 9 Launches, Seventh Flight of a Recycled Rocket

While tonight will see SpaceX's 16th launch of its broadband satellites, that launch will also make history, reports CNET: The first stage of the Falcon 9 rocket is set to make its seventh flight, which would be a record for rocket recycling for the company. The booster previously flew on four Starlink missions and a pair of larger telecom satellite launches. SpaceX will likely attempt to land the booster on a droneship in the Atlantic shortly after launch and may also try to catch the two halv...

Watch SpaceX launch a satellite that will monitor the world’s oceans

SpaceX is set to launch a Falcon 9 from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California on Saturday morning, with a target liftoff time of 9:17 AM PST (12:17 PM EST). This is the Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich Mission, which carries a satellite of the same name developed by the European Space Agency, NASA, and both U.S. and European meteorological monitoring bodies. The Sentinel-6 is named for former NASA Earth Science Division Director Michael Freilich, who occupied the position between 2006 and ...

Elon Musk's SpaceX is launching a satellite that can measure rising sea levels to the millimeter from 830 miles above Earth

Maja Hitij/Getty Images SpaceX is launching a satellite in November that will track how climate change is causing sea levels to rise. The Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich satellite will take off November 10 from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, aboard a Falcon 9 rocket. The satellite will measure how rising sea levels are eroding coastlines by updating maps of the oceans every ten days. Its altimeters can measure millimeter-scale changes in elevation. The project is a collaboration bet...
