SpaceX will be attempting to land a Falcon 9 rocket again after launching a satellite into space. As opposed to the company’s last landing, the Falcon will now land on a barge in the sea rather than back on land. The Falcon 9 v1.2 will lift-off at 13.42 CEST from Vandenberg Air Force Base. The launch will be of the Jason-3 satellite, an Earth observation spacecraft designed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The satellite will observe global ocean height levels together with existing American and European satellites.Read More
