SpaceX Successfully Has Third Launch for the Same Booster and Can Reuse the Fairings

SpaceX Launched the same block 5 first stage rocket booster for the third time. The launch was a success and the booster landed and can be reused a fourth time. The two halves of the fairing were almost caught by the Mr. Stevens boat. However, the water landing was so soft that the fairings were not damaged and can be reused.
