3rd SpaceX rocket lands – level 2
Billionaire Elon Musk did it again. He landed a SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket on a drone ship in the middle of the ocean last Friday. A camera captured the descent.
The 70-metre-tall rocket moved a telecommunications satellite to the orbit. It took just 9 minutes for the rocket to be safe back on Earth. This is the third successful landing of a SpaceX rocket.
SpaceX has orders from customers, including NASA, for more than 10 billion dollars.
Difficult words: drone ship (an unmanned ship – without any people on the ship), descent (coming down), orbit (the space around Earth where satellites are).
