Spacex has a good landing on the drone ship

Spacex had a good landing on the drone ship

Spacex Dragon is on its way to the International Space Station.

This is the second time SpaceX has successfully landed one of its rocket stages. In December, 2015, Spacex landed Falcon 9 rocket at a ground-based landing site in Cape Canaveral

Elon Musk, SpaceX’s CEO, said drone ship landings are “needed for high-velocity missions.” Musk added that altitude and distance don’t mean much for orbit—speed does.

“Ship landings are not needed for flexibility or to save fuel costs,” Musk explained. “Just not physically possible to return to return to launch site.”
