Space X, the aerospace company founded in 2002 is owned by tech mogul Elon Musk, has performed several experiments on the safe landing of rockets. But unfortunately, all the attempts to launch and the land became a big disaster as all the fueled machines ended up in fiery explosions. But, today, this is not the case. The engineers worked on the safe landing of rockets and made this impossible mission possible.
On Thursday morning, Musk tweeted that “Long road to reusability of Falcon 9 primary boost stage…When upper stage & fairing also reusable, costs will drop by a factor >100,” referring to the company’s reusable, 229-foot-tall orbital rocket system.
He also shared one long video on YouTube along with the message. This video is an exclusive one as it consists of high-definition clips of footage that no one has ever released to date.
The video consists of many experiments that were carried out several years ago, including Grasshopper rocket tests. The video clip does not include June 2015, September 2016, and other Falcon 9 rocket failure footage, as these incidents, resulted in the loss of high-priced cargoes.
At present, Space X has the most successful launch of Falcon 9 rockets, dropping off customer payloads into orbit and recovering the booster, which is the most expensive part of the rocket. Hence, the company is trying to repair its multi-million-dollar system. If this becomes possible, the company will earn Space X billions, leading them to enter into a new era of spaceflight.
The Space X company plans to launch its largest and reusable rocket system, which is dubbed Falcon Heavy, in November with a team of NASA astronauts and other customers (perhaps even a moon mission) in 2019.
