Elon Musk is a billionaire. He has a company called SpaceX. SpaceX makes rockets. These rockets can come back to Earth.

The third SpaceX rocket lands. It lands on a drone ship. The ship is in the middle of the ocean. A camera films the descent.

The rocket is 70 metres tall. It carries to space a telecommunications satellite. It takes only 9 minutes to get back.

Difficult words: drone ship (an unmanned ship – without any people on the ship), descent (coming down), telecommunications satellite (a machine in space which lets you make phone calls and use the Internet).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
