Photos: Falcon 9 booster stands upright after landing | Spaceflight Now
SpaceX took a group of reporters and photographers just offshore the Falcon 9 rocket’s landing point Tuesday, a day after the 15-story booster made a pinpoint touchdown after helping send 11 communications satellites into orbit.
Seen from a boat just off the coast, the Falcon 9 rocket’s first stage shows signs of wear after its 10-minute flight. After deploying an upper stage to propel 11 Orbcomm message relay satellites into orbit, the first stage steered back toward Cape Canaveral and touched down at a facility SpaceX calls Landing Zone 1, about six miles south of the Falcon 9’s starting point.
