SpaceX has launched 64 satellites simultaneously with the help of the Falcon 9 rocket from California on Monday.

This is a new record created by the United States.

The company of American billionaire Elon Musk launched the same Falcon 9 rocket for the third time using a recycled rocket technology.


Musk’s company SpaceX is working on the same rocket continuously for launch.

California’s SpaceX has recalled more than 30 boosters to Earth and is now using it again.

The rocket, Falcon 9, blasted off at 10:34 a.m. local time (18:34 GMT) from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California carrying satellites from 34 different companies, universities and government agencies.

The mission, dubbed SSO-A, was “one of the most complex and intricate endeavours” for Seattle-based startup Spaceflight, the ride-share company that arranged passage for each satellite maker, said SpaceX.

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of SpaceX, Elon Musk tweeted, “Falcon fairing halves missed the net, but touched down softly in the water.”


Talking to social media, Musk wrote on Twitter, “Plan is to dry them out & launch again. Nothing wrong with a little swim.”
