SpaceX releases are no longer new, but this time there was a debut for the Elon Musk rockets, since the "boot" happened in California, instead of Florida. Everything went well and was "beautiful", as the pictures show.
The skies of California, in the United States, lit up this morning in a special way, due to the launch of a Falcon 9 from SpaceX. The rocket mission of Elon Musk's space company was to put into orbit the Argentine satellite SAOCOM 1A, which happened successfully.
The spacecraft will be "dropped" 12 minutes after the launch of the rocket, which was made from Space Launch Complex 4E (SLC-4E) at the Vandenberg Air Force Base in the US state of California. After the usual separation by stages, the first phase of Falcon 9 returned to land on the same base, but in the zone LZ-4, prepared for the effect.
Without a single cloud in the sky to disrupt the show, and with the sun disappearing on the horizon, the "pyrotechnic effect" caused by the launch of the SpaceX rocket was recorded in many images.
Dazzling strangers (who ignored the powerful sound effects) made their Twitter and Instagram shares, as well as SpaceX itself, with Elon Musk helping with some publications.
