California, April 11: SpaceX, the rocket company owned by business magnate, Elon Musk released an interestingly new-age video on Instagram. The video highlights rocket booster landing which is incredibly edited from 3 video feeds.
The boosters landed on ships and were caught on cameras placed near the decks, also known as, ‘Of Course I Still Love You’. This perfect landing will change the course of space flight forever.
SpaceX, aerospace company designs, manufactures and launches advanced rockets and spacecrafts. Elon Musk exclaimed, “It’s been 15 years to get to this point. I am at loss of words. This is going to be a huge revolution for space flight.”
Along with this rocket, the company’s most expensive and largest innovation is Falcon 9 rocket system. It is 229-foot-tall and costs a whopping US $62million.
SpaceX is also looking forward to launch, land and re-launch rockets in a 24-hour time frame. The motive behind re-usable rockets is that the astronauts stuck in space do not have to wait for a long stretch of time before new rockets are sent to retrieve them; they can directly re-launch the rocket back to earth. Such a space mission will reduce the costs by 20% and increase the profits by 50% circa.
In 2018, SpaceX might send its first human passengers into space and provide Earth with high-speed internet using 4,425 satellites.
