SpaceX's Falcon 9 Reusable Rocket Flies to 3,300 Feet and Lands Safely
SpaceX has pushed its new reusable rocket prototype to the top heights, just a limited short weeks after the vehicle's first flight. A remarkable new SpaceX video displays the company's Falcon 9 Reusable rocket rising to 3,300 feet i.e. 1,000 meters, about four times as high as the rocket went through its first flying test last month.
The spectacular video, which was released on Friday (May 2), was took by a flying drone, giving a bird's-eye sight of the action. The video displays the Falcon 9R taking off from SpaceX's rocket-development facility in McGregor, Texas, terrifying some close cows and then touching down as calculated back at the pad around two minutes after takeoff.
