SpaceX has once again showed why it’s at the forefront of reusable spacecraft innovation with the first successful relaunch of a Dragon vehicle.
The Dragon had previously been used back in 2014, flying a resupply mission to the International Space Station.
The relaunch is another realisation of the company’s vision, proving that cost-effective spacefaring is a genuine reality.
The first stage of the Falcon 9 rocket that propelled the Dragon during the initial stages of the launch has successfully landed back at the company’s “Landing Zone 1” at Cape Carnaveral in Florida.
“Dragon is scheduled to arrive at the International Space Station on Monday, June 5 to be installed on the Earth-facing side of the Harmony module for its month-long stay,” the company adds.
