SpaceX's New Hangar Is Looking Good

SpaceX is taking over Launchpad 39A, the iconic pad at Kennedy Space Center that launched all the Apollo missions, and the first and last Shuttles. Things are looking good at the future launchpad for Dragons.


SpaceX Still Doesn't Know Why Its Falcon 9 Rocket Blew Up

On Sunday, Elon Musk’s SpaceX saw another rocket explode — this time only minutes after launch. And following what must have been a fun night of review for the SpaceX team, the verdict on what went wrong is in: They don’t have a clue.


SpaceX's New Hangar Is A Mammoth Gateway To The Stars

To send really big rockets into space, you need equally enormous buildings to construct them in. Enter SpaceX’s new hangar, under construction right next to the pad that used to send Apollo missions to the moon.


Watch SpaceX Try To Land A Rocket On A Drone Ship (Again)

OK, let’s try this again. After one near miss resulting in a disastrous but honestly pretty cool explosion and delay after delay from weather (including yesterday), SpaceX is going to try to land the first stage of its Falcon 9 rocket on a remote drone ship beginning at 4.10pm EDT (6.10am AEST).


Watch SpaceX Try To Land A Rocket On A Drone Ship [Update: It's A No-Go]

Third time’s a charm. After one near miss resulting in a disastrous but honestly pretty cool explosion and another delay from some gusty winds, SpaceX is going to try to land the first stage of its Falcon 9 rocket on a remote drone ship beginning at 4.33pm EDT (6.33am AEST).


Watch How SpaceX's Falcon 9 Deploys A Communications Satellite 

Video: On March 1 SpaceX’s Falcon 9 deployed two all-electric communication satellites to a supersynchronous transfer orbit. This is the second: The EUTELSAT 115 West B. According to EUTELSAT’s website it “will provide the Americas with new satellite capacity to reach markets serving high-growth data, video, mobility and government applications.”

With a little bit of luck, SpaceX just might make history today.


SpaceX Is Testing Autonomous Space Rocket Landing Ships

Elon Musk’s list of crazy/brilliant inventions is getting pretty lengthy, but he’s decided to add to the list with the Saturday afternoon unveiling of “X-wing config” wings for the Falcon 9 rocket, and a self-piloting ship to act as a landing pad for the reusable rockets.


Neat Point-Of-View Video Shows The Vertical Re-Entry Of The Falcon 9

Video: The Falcon 9 performed a vertical soft landing test last week, and SpaceX got a pretty neat point-of-view video of the re-entry and touch down from an onboard camera. The camera’s glass broke thanks to the landing burn but the images of the rocket entering the earth from such an unusual perspective are really impressive nonetheless.


SpaceX Celebrates Flawless Falcon 9 Spacecraft Launch

SpaceX celebrated a flawless launch of its Falcon 9 spacecraft from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on Wednesday. It delivered an SES-8 satellite into orbit without a glitch bringing the Falcon 9 one flight away from being qualified to fly missions for the US Air Force. [SpaceX via BoingBoing]
