SpaceX is about to launch nearly their 50th Falcon nine rocket in space. It’s been around a decade since SpaceX launched their first Falcon 9 rocket in space. On Tuesday March 6, 2018 SpaceX will make an attempt to launch the Hispasat 30W-6 communications satellite to geostationary transfer orbit.
Will SpaceX attempt to land the first stage of the Falcon Nine?
Well as of right now it’s not clear weather SpaceX will make the attempt of landing the first stage of the Falcon 9 rocket. The satelite weighs more than six metric tons, which is heavier than any other Falcon 9 load bound for geostationary orbit, that SpaceX has ever land before. Therefore the rocket will spend nearly all of its fuel to get into a proper geostationary transfer orbit—making any return to Earth hot and fast.
Regardless of all the thinks SpaceX is doing, it’s amazing how far has the company came. Their goals are huge and we will be looking forward to what SpaceX will achieve. One of their biggest missions that took the first step towards is that SpaceX is trying to convert humanity into multi-planetary species.
