NEW YORK, March 5. /TASS/. American aerospace manufacturer and space transport services company Space Exploration Technologies Corp. (SpaceX) on Friday launched a Falcon 9 carrier rocket carrying Luxembourg-based company SES’ communications satellite.
The blastoff, which had been previously delayed four times, was carried out from Cape Canaveral, Florida.
However, SpaceX failed to successfully land the first-stage booster rocket on a floating barge, SpaceX chief Elon Musk said. He said the booster hit the floating platform hard.
