However, it was only the second time the Falcon Heavy rocket had been used. The first launch with Falcon Heavy was in February 2018, where two of its three rocket boosters landed perfectly back down to earth. The third missed its drone ship out in the ocean. On Thursday, SpaceX went three-for-three, with all of the rocket boosters landing in the correct spot safely, in what looked like a synchronized masterpiece for all of the space community to see. In the video at the top of the page, you can see the two ground-bound rocket boosters reaching their landing zones at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. In the video below, you can watch the full replay of the mission, including the third booster landing safely on the "Of Course I Still Love You" droneship in the Atlantic Ocean. The mission launched a satellite into orbit that will deliver television, radio, internet and mobile communications to customers in the Middle East, Africa and Europe. The successful mission will be highlighted by the return of the three rocket boosters that were designed to display the reusability of the rockets. They were built to land in that fashion so they could be restored and reused with quick turnaround time for future missions, thus reducing the costs of private space launches.
