Thursday’s mission, carrying the SES-10 telecoms satellite, took off from Florida’s Kennedy Space Center at 18:27 local time (22:27 GMT) and successfully landed the booster again.
The mission made use of the rocket that blasted off for the first time in April 2016 to deliver the Dragon spacecraft to the International Space Station (ISS). The rocket performed the company's first ever successful ship landing when it landed on a drone ship in the Atlantic.
