After an updated version of the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral in Florida flew into orbit with Bangladesh's first communications satellite, its founder and CEO Elon Musk said on Sunday that his company would have over 300 missions in five years ] The "Block 5" Booster, the final major upgrade to the SpaceX Falcon 9 launcher, was launched on NASA's first NASA flight from Kennedy Space Center on Friday.
The first stage of the rocket was successfully salvaged and landed on the offshore drone "Off course, I love you" about eight minutes after launch on an unmanned Pacific Ocean platform ship
"SpaceX will likely build 30 to 40 rocket cores for 300 missions over 5 years, then the Big Falcon Rocket (BFR) & Falcon retires, and BFR's goal is to move everyone to the Moon, Mars, and finally to the outer planets, "musk tweeted Sunday [1
"rate at which things seem to get more bizarre. In the future, it will seem bizarre that we throw rockets into the ocean instead of reusing them, "Musk added.
Falcon 9 rocket with the aim of bringing astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS). in the future came with many design changes to improve reusability and reliability. These changes can make it easier for engineers to redevelop their first stages for more flights.
The new rocket has improved its helium tanks immersed in liquid fuel tanks in the second stage. The helium tanks were destroyed on September 1, 2016 in a pre-launch test and caused an explosion.
The Big Falcon Rocket or BFR exploring Mars – a target that Musk aims to achieve by 2022 – According to the media, the LA Board of the Harbor Commissioners unanimously agreed, SpaceX to establish the BFR – Mars – Rocket in a new facility on Terminal Island in the Port of Los Angeles to enable Los Angeles
The report said the new rocket production facility would be built on a 19-acre lot on the largely artificial island that is part of the port. The plant would employ up to 700 people, according to SpaceX.
According to Musk, the huge new rocket would be nearly 350 feet tall and 30 feet in diameter.
Last month, NASA's next planet – hunter, the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (Tess), was successfully launched on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
Tess is expected to have thousands of new exoplanets in the Close to finding stars, including some that could support life.
