SpaceX is about to make history by relaunching a used Falcon 9 rocket - UNIVERSE
On Thursday, SpaceX is scheduled to launch the SES-10 communications satellite. What's unusual about the launch is that it will be the company's first relaunch of a rocket that successfully launched and landed. Just under 1 year ago, the rocket was used on a resupply mission to the International Space Station. Reusing its rockets has been SpaceX's primary goal, with the company viewing reuse as the key to drastically reducing the cost of spaceflight, so this launch is a key milestone in the company's efforts.
