SpaceX wants to land next booster at Cape Canaveral
After its next launch, SpaceX hopes to fly a Falcon 9 booster back to a landing site on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, making its first attempt to bring a booster down on land rather than on a platform in the ocean.
The Cape landing attempt has not yet been approved as part of a commercial launch license to be issued by the Federal Aviation Administration, and the timing of SpaceX’s next launch – the company’s first since a failed flight in June – remains uncertain.
SpaceX could try to launch of a group of small commercial communications satellites for New Jersey-based Orbcomm Inc. as soon as Dec. 15, but has not yet confirmed a date with the Air Force’s 45th Space Wing.
