Elon Musk made history again. The space company Space X managed to make history when landing the recycled rocket Falcon 9 on a barge in the sea for the second occasion. Thus, Falcon 9 has become the first rocket that has been successfully reused after the launch and landing of April 8, 2016.
The Musk company has tested eight rockets since December 2015, but Falcon 9 has had more mileage, and has completed the second of three scheduled flights.
Falcon 9 first stage has landed on Of Course I Still Love You — world’s first reflight of an orbital class rocket.

This time, Falcon 9 was to put into orbit an SES-10 satellite, intended to provide telecommunications services to Latin America. Like the landing, this mission was completed.
Recycling rockets is the proposal of Space X to save millions of dollars to space programs and end the old practice of discarding the rockets used in space missions.
