National Geographic pays tribute to Monumental Landing of Falcon 9, releases Documentary Video

To give an honorable tribute to this milestone of Elon Musk-owned SpaceX and its Falcon 9 Project, National Geographic channel recently published a small video clip, describing the documentary of the momentous event. In the clip, National Geographic Channel described how intense and tense the moment was for Mr. Elon Musk and other associated scientists and astronomers of the SpaceX while the rocket was taking its first attempt.

Elon Musk-owned SpaceX made history one year ago, by launching Falcon 9 – the two-stage ambitious rocket with the satellite into orbit on 22nd December 2015. By successfully sending a satellite into orbit, and securely landing vertical on a shred of tangible landing pad in Cape Canaveral, SpaceX has recorded its name in the golden history of the space exploration missions last year and on this December; the astronomical society is celebrating the one year anniversary of the SpaceX.

The first launch event of Falcon 9 was taken place in 2012 when it transmitted the Dragon into the exact course of the earth for meeting with the International Space Station (ISS). This event made SpaceX the first commercial space firm to meet ISS. Later in 2015, the rocket deployed its historic satellite and placed it in Earth’s course with utmost accuracy. In the video issued by NG Channel, one can spot the owner of SpaceX, Mr. Musk while asking if the sensors of the rocket would be capable of perceiving anything or not. In the video, Mr. Musk is also spotted to run out of the control room to watch the rocket flying in the sky, immediate after the launch took place.

To recall, the most advanced rocket – Falcon 9 is the first reusable rocket that is intended to hit the outer space and transmit satellite into the orbit of the Earth before carefully landing upright on Earth. Falcon 9 is configured with a two-stage program and owned by SpaceX. The rocket is designed for safely and reliably launching the satellites and the Dragon spacecraft into orbit. On 22nd December, the rocket dispatched its first-ever satellite and successfully placed it in the orbit of the Earth. The outline of the Falcon 9 is intended for taking off from the ground with the maximum reliability. It’s simple two-phase configuration lessens the possibilities of separating the launch events and with its nine first-stage engines; the rocket can complete any mission before the engine shutdown.
