SpaceX has landed its second Falcon 9 launch at sea after launching a second Falcon 1 on Tuesday.
The launch, dubbed Landing One, was one of the first times the company has launched from a launchpad, which the company hopes to use to launch more Falcon 9 rockets.
The Falcon 9 booster landed at about 08:00 local time, more than 30 minutes after the first launch of Falcon 9 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, a company spokesman said.
The first launch came at about 07:15, which was also a record for the company, which has previously flown six launches in a row, the company said.
Falcon 9 is the first vehicle in the company’s fleet to carry a payload that can be used for commercial, government and military spaceflight.
The company’s rocket also carried supplies for the US military.
The second launch, Landing Two, was at about 09:30, about three minutes after SpaceX launched the third Falcon 9 in a series of Falcon 1 launches, the spokesman said, without providing further details.
SpaceX has launched at least two Falcon 9 launches since the beginning of 2019.
The first of these launches, a Falcon 9 first stage landing on a drone ship in the Atlantic Ocean, ended up in a splashdown in the ocean.
The company has since flown three Falcon 9s and three Falcon 1s.
