“Tonight, we congratulate SpaceX on yet another history-making launch and landing. SpaceX dared what many deemed impossible as they landed the first stage of its Falcon 9 in 2015. And today, from storied Launch Complex 39A, SpaceX reached another turning point in the aerospace industry, launching its reused first stage, deploying the SES satellite payload and successfully landing the booster. And just as with America’s first lunar landing or the orbit of the Friendship 7 astronauts, today’s SpaceX milestone will be remembered for generations to come.
Space Florida looks forward to the continued success of Elon Musk and the SpaceX team as Florida’s space industry grows in new and innovative ways.”
