It's the first time the company has been able to pull off an ocean landing, after four previous attempts ended in failure. Today's success is a crucial milestone for SpaceX, as it shows the company can land its rockets both on solid ground and ocean. Scientists have found gravitational waves? The significance of that finding explained by Loren Grush and The Verge Video team. SpaceX is targeting launch of Iridium-6 GRACE-FO on Tuesday, May 22 from Space Launch Complex 4E (SLC-4E) at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California. The instantaneous launch opportunity is at 12: 47 p. m. PDT, or 19: 47 UTC. The GRACE-FO satellites will be deployed approximately eleven minutes and thirty seconds after launch, followed by the deployment of five Iridium® NEXT satellites beginning about an hour after launch. A backup instantaneous launch opportunity is available on Wednesday, May 23 at 12: 42 p. m. PDT, or 19: 42 UTC. Falcon 9’s first stage for the Iridium-6 GRACE-FO mission previously supported the Zuma mission from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in January 2018. SpaceX will not attempt to recover Falcon 9’s first stage after launch.
