The Amazing Camera Work Involved in the SpaceX Falcon Heavy Launch

We've all been impressed seeing SpaceX land almost everything they've tried to land successfully, and it seems the company is looking to re-use yet another part of their rockets. "Due to mission requirements, now targeting February 21 launch of PAZ".

Paz won't be riding alone on the recycled Falcon 9.

A delayed SpaceX launch is set to blast off Wednesday morning at 7:17 Arizona time.

The rocket fairing costs in the neighborhood of $6 Million USD, so getting more than one use out of that specific rocket part could conceivably drive SpaceX launch costs - which are already pretty ridiculously low - even lower. They also will conduct further testing of the rocket's fairing, which is the section at the tip of the rocket which costs $5 million and deploys the rocket's payload, according to a report in

Right off the bat, I'm confident that Mr. Steven is some variety of Sci-Fi reference, though off the top of my head I can't place it.

SpaceX's Dragon 2 capsule was used by NASA to send cargo to the International Space Station.

The two demonstration satellites, known as Microsat-2a and Microsat-2b, will launch as the so-called secondary payload on the Falcon 9 launch, according to documents filed this month with the Federal Communications Commission. The test mission was an incredible success.

In an incredible accomplishment, the Falcon Heavy's reused side boosters landed smoothly back down to Earth on two separate launchpads about 8 minutes in. His company has demonstrated the ability to do so time and again by landing and reusing rocket boosters and its Dragon spacecraft.

With the next Falcon 9 launch, SpaceX is planning to deliver Spain's Paz radar imaging satellite and Starlink prototypes, launching from Vandenberg Air Force Base.

For several years, Musk has planned to launch more than 4,000 internet-beaming satellites in a bid to create high-speed broadband from space.
