SpaceX has once again successfully launched and landed a rocket flying

SpaceX wrote history before our eyes, bringing letters in the form of rockets reusable, but the company is just beginning to return to their creations in the space after the first run. Earlier this week SpaceX has delayed the launch of its first Bulgarian cargo, satellite BulgariaSat-1. Today rocket took off and went into orbit without incident.

It was an important launch for both companies. For SpaceX's second demonstration of reusable rockets. Bulgaria is the first satellite of the country in General. BulgariaSat-1 is based on the SSL 1300 platform and will provide high-quality television and other services. The power of the satellite is supplied via six solar panels and is the first satellite in a geostationary orbit, located over Bulgaria. It is expected to be in operation for 15 years or more.

The Satellite was launched into the desired orbit and ready to deploy. Elon Musk said that the rocket returned "a bit burnt and severely hit the deck, but otherwise fine." Only suppressed the "aluminum honeycomb cartridges", which can be replaced for a couple of hours.

Many asked Musk what he thinks about the return of the rocket for the third time, but he was evasive. Even if this missile will not be able to return to duty, the concept of reusable rockets will greatly reduce the cost of launching satellites at all. Even two or three run of the same vessel will be a major step forward compared to the previous system of single use. There is also evidence that SpaceX has significantly reduced the price of United Launch Alliance for the launch.

To Prove that a company can send its missiles multiply, it is also very important for SpaceX — she needs to restore the reputation after the loss of valuable cargo during the last 24 months. The company conducted a thorough investigation of the processes and procedures associated with the failure, and believes that solved the problem. Overall, SpaceX is implementing a plan to use reusable rockets much faster than many had expected.

This launch weekend, SpaceX fail. On Sunday, the company will make the new Falcon 9 and 10 satellites, Iridium NEXT.
