SpaceX’s 2 record-breaking launches in 2 days

SpaceX’s 2 record-breaking launches in 2 days

27.06.17

On June 25, SpaceX launched Falcon 9 with ten satellites onboard.

This launch was the second one in two days and the ninth one in a year for SpaceX. On June 23, the company launched a similar rocket Falcon 9 with a Bulgarian telecommunication satellite. The interval in 2 days became record-breaking for SpaceX since it hadn’t performed launches with such frequency.

The launch held on June 25 was delayed for a day because of weather conditions. Despite fog and wind, the launch was successful. The first stage reached a start platform after being detached from the launch vehicle. The other part of the rocket reached the necessary height in 10 minutes. Then satellites were placed into the orbit.
