SpaceX’s Dragon spacecraft arrived at the International Space Station this morning, where it was neatly snagged by the station’s 57-foot robotic arm.
Having successfully launched and landed a few single rockets, SpaceX is now planning a simultaneous triple rocket landing. This is going to look cool.
A new video from Real Engineering explains the nuts and bolts of how SpaceX is planning to bring people to Mars and details the advantages that SpaceX has in making that actually happen. It’s both fun and enlightening!
If you needed proof that the future of reusable rocket technology is going to be spectacular, look no further than SpaceX’s latest launch-and-landing time exposure photo, which shows a Falcon 9 rocket screaming away from Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (left), before the first stage booster lands…
SpaceX’s work in reusable rockets will get another push as scientists prepare Sunday for a launch and subsequent landing of the Falcon 9 rocket tonight.
You can pretend to be disappointed every time SpaceX’s Falcon 9 crashes during a landing attempt, but deep down you know part of you wants to see an explosion. That’s why this video of a miniature flying SpaceX Falcon 9 drone is both awesome and disappointing, because there’s never going to be a fireball.
Blue Origin is launching its crew capsule today—and then they’re going to take out its parachute and see what happens. You can watch it happen at 10:15 am ET.
After a string of successful ocean landings, SpaceX’s latest Falcon 9 rocket crashed hard right into its drone ship.
A pair of satellites is going up this morning on one of SpaceX’s Falcon 9s. Will the rocket pull off a double-satellite launch and ocean landing as neatly as it pulled off its singles? Let’s watch and find out!
The world’s most powerful rocket launched this weekend carrying... well, we’re still not quite sure what it was carrying (although speculation suggests a super secret spy satellite). What we do know is this: it launched, and it looked incredible.
Elon Musk, the billionaire businessman who wants to literally die on Mars after he puts an electric car in every American’s garage, just had a meeting at the Pentagon with the US Secretary of Defense. But neither Musk nor Secretary Ash Carter will disclose what they talked about.
Elon Musk is ready to prove that landing the rocket on a barge in April wasn’t just a fluke. Yesterday, the SpaceX co-founder tweeted that he hoped to relaunch its four landed rockets this fall for the first time.
We usually see rocket launches and landings from above. But there’s something about seeing the whole thing happen from the ground-up that’s just so much better.
Last night, Elon Musk suggested that Earth is simply a simulation from an alien race’s video game. Why would Musk say this? Because he is one of those aliens.
SpaceX has done it again. For the third time in a row, the Falcon 9 rocket has delivered its payload in the upper atmosphere and returned to earth with a successful vertical propulsion landing on the drone ship Of Course I Still Love You. This time SpaceX released the best angle yet of the landing—from the rocket…
Yesterday SpaceX planned the trickiest rocket landing yet. Unfortunately technical glitches meant it had to delay the attempt until today.
SpaceX has been having an incredible run of rocket launches lately—the most notable part is that it’s been successfully landing its rockets on a barge in the ocean. Not easy. Today, it will attempt one of its most complicated landings yet. Let’s watch and see what happens at 5:40pm ET tonight.
Time for your daily dose of space porn! Photographer Zach Grether posted photos on his blog of what he said was the landing of the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.
