SpaceX Launches New Rocket


An updated version of the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket made its debut launch on Friday from Florida’s Cape Canaveral carrying a communications satellite for Bangladesh into orbit. The rocket is tailored for eventual crewed missions for NASA. The newly minted Block-5 edition of the Falcon 9 is equipped with about 100 upgrades for greater power, safety and reusability than its Block-4 predecessor. It lifted off at 4:14 p.m. locale time from the Kennedy Space Center. Minutes later, the rocket’s main-stage booster flew itself back to Earth to achieve a safe return landing on an unmanned platform vessel floating in the Pacific Ocean. The recoverable Block-5 booster is designed to be reused at least 10 times with minimal refurbishment between flights. https://ift.tt/2G8wHo1 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
