The roar of nine Merlin engines, the subtle blasts of the gas engines, the dazzling spectacle of elegance, fire and vapors through the grille fins. These are just a few of the highlights of the SpaceX Falcon 9 launch and landing from the standpoint of the rocket itself.
The company shared a new angle the mostA satellite from the camera on the missile.
We’ve seen clips like this during dozens of SpaceX launches streamed across the web, but seeing the start and end of the entire flight provides a different perspective.
You can see everything at the top of this post. Keep in mind that the entire flight is closer to eight minutes – the two-minute segment is just the launch and landing phase, omitting the main portion that includes separating the second stage of the missile. (It won’t be visible from that camera angle anyway.)
We could see SpaceX launch again as soon as next week with the company’s upcoming Starlink launch planned.
