SpaceX‘s rocket launching and landing sequences has become very successful that we expect it to be just routine. Of course, deploying large complicated machinery, like the Falcon 9, is anything but routine.
The sight of launch is extraordinary experience, in our eyes. But the landings of the re-usable first stage of the rocket is mesmerizing. And every time we witness the landing, our jaws drop and giggle like little boys and girls.
Today’s mission has been the 39th time Falcon 9 had been launched. It’s total record of success is: 37 successes, 1 failure, 1 partial-failure (TTL: 95%~ success rate).
