Hawthorne, Calif.-based Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX) is a commercial company aiming to launch cargo, and eventually people, to low-Earth orbit. The firm is developing its Dragon capsule and Falcon 9 booster under contracts from NASA's Commercial Crew Development (CCDev) program and its Commercial Orbital Transportation Services (COTS) program.
On March 30, 2017, a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched the SES-10 communications satellite into orbit from Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center. See photos from the launch — which also included the successful landing of the rocket's first stage — here.
SpaceX's first "flight-proven" Falcon 9 rocket first stage to be launched and recovered for a second time won't leave Florida again, on another spaceflight or otherwise. The rocket stage will be retired and put on display near its launch site.
SpaceX isn't content with just re-using the first stages of its Falcon 9 rockets; the company aims to recover and refly the boosters' payload fairings, and perhaps their second stages as well, company founder and CEO Elon Musk said.
