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).
