SpaceX Rocket Landing: What to Expect This Weekend
SpaceX is hoping to nail another historic rocket landing this weekend — but this one will be different than the one that dazzled onlookers last month at Cape Canaveral in Florida.
Launching from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, SpaceX will try for the third time to land its Falcon 9 on a barge floating in the open ocean. Previous attempts had come close to landing on the barge but were destroyed when they narrowly missed the mark and suffered crash landings.
The precise landing of the Falcon 9 last month at Cape Canaveral has many eager to see if SpaceX founder Elon Musk and his team can pull off their second ever rocket landing. If all goes according to plan, here’s what you can expect this Sunday.
