SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket took off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida this morning, successfully delivering a highly anticipated satellite into orbit. If all goes according to plan, the launch will mark the first time a private company has sent a payload into orbit using its own Falcon 9 rocket.
What was SpaceX Falcon Rocket?
The SpaceX Falcon Rocket was a launch vehicle designed, developed and manufactured by SpaceX. It was designed to put payloads into orbit. The Falcon Rocket used three main engines – a Merlin 1D engine, an AJ26 engine, and a Kestrel engine. The Falcon Rocket was first used in 2006 to launch the Falcon 1 satellite into orbit.
How Was the Falcon Rocket Launched?
The Falcon rocket was launched into space from Cape Canaveral on Sunday morning. The launch was successful, and the rocket reached its destination – space – safely.
To launch the Falcon rocket, SpaceX used a combination of two different types of rockets: a Falcon 9 rocket and a Falcon Heavy rocket.
The Falcon 9 rocket is made up of nine separate parts. Four of these parts are used to lift the payload (the satellite or spacecraft) into space. The other five parts help to keep the rocket stable as it’s in flight.
The Falcon Heavy rocket is made up of 27 different parts. It’s three times as powerful as the Falcon 9, and it can carry more weight into space.
Both rockets were assembled at the launch site before being transported to Cape Canaveral. There, they were launched into space using powerful engines.
What Happened After the Falcon Rocket Launch?
After the Falcon rocket launch, many people were anxious to see what happened. The launch successfully delivered supplies to the International Space Station (ISS). However, there was a problem with one of the legs of the rocket.
The trouble began when one of the legs failed after reaching a height of about 130 kilometers. This caused the rocket to fall back down to Earth and explode near the launch pad. Fortunately, there were no injuries or damage as a result of this incident.
The failure of the leg meant that supplies couldn’t be delivered to the ISS as planned. However, it appears that everything else went according to plan otherwise. The launch set a new world record for the highest altitude reached by a rocket powered by an engine made from recycled materials.
