SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket takes off for the 12th time, leaves 53 more satellites in low-earth orbit

SpaceX successfully launched its Falcon 9 rocket for the 12th time and then it returned to Earth, which is a record in itself.

SpaceX successfully launched its Falcon 9 rocket for the 12th time and then it returned to Earth, which is a record in itself. Falcon 9 was launched from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida on 19 March 12:24am (ET) and 9:54am IST in low-Earth orbit. The rocket carried SpaceX’s Starlink Internet carrying 53 satellites. This was the 12th flight of the Falcon 9 First Stage. It broke the previous record for SpaceX rocket reuse. 

Through a tweet, SpaceX confirmed the launch of 53 satellites in low Earth orbit. 

In another tweet, the company said that this is the first time the Falcon 9 first stage has landed for the 12th time since its launch. 

SpaceX also confirmed the rocket launch on its website. You can watch the launch video below. 

Describing the mission, SpaceX representatives said that the Falcon 9 is a reusable, two-stage rocket. It is capable of transporting people and other payloads to low Earth orbit and beyond. It is the world’s first reusable orbital rocket. With its help, we have been able to reduce the cost of our space missions to a great extent. 

After launch, the Falcon 9 first stage landed on a droneship called Just Read the Instructions (JRTI) in the Atlantic Ocean, returning from stage separation on Earth. 

SpaceX’s Starlink satellite internet service provides worldwide internet connectivity. This includes Ukraine, which has been under constant attack from Russia for several days, and the country’s communication infrastructure has been badly damaged.
