Tonight SpaceX for the first time to re-launch the rocket version of the Block 5

May 11, SpaceX launched a new optimized re-use option Block 5 of the Falcon 9 rocket. Then Elon Musk answered the question, when will we see the first re-flight of a Block 5:

"We take very seriously analyze this rocket apart, to make sure that our design assumptions are correct and you can use it again, without taking apart," said Musk. "Ironically, we have to take it apart to confirm that it is not necessary to disassemble".

Obviously, on the analysis of the first stage of the rocket took not much time, because after three months after the first launch the rocket again is on the launch pad to fly up tonight. SpaceX plans to bring Merah Putih satellite to geosynchronous transfer orbit during a two-hour window that opens at 5:18 in UTC time (8:18 GMT). The first step try to land on the platform unmanned vessel "Of Course I Still Love You" at the end of your main function. Weather conditions favourable.

Although the company says little about the process of parsing the core of the first rocket Block 5, obviously, special problems were found. The successful launch of the 5.8-ton satellite this week will increase the probability that SpaceX can launch one of the first stages of their Falcon 9 rockets in three separate launch for the first time this year.

The Stream will be live.
