SpaceX launched a rocket with 64 satellites

SpaceX launched the Falcon 9 rocket from California with 64 low Earth orbit satellites, which the company called the largest misseshaft mission from a US-based rocket.

The mission, also called SSO-A, also marked the third space travel for the same Sokol 9 rocket – another milestone for space-saving missile technology.

Sokol 9 was destroyed by the Vendenberg Air Force Base in California at 10:34 local time (0534 AEDT) with satellites from 34 different companies, government agencies and universities.

SpaceX said the mission was "one of the most complex and complex efforts" to launch Seattle-based Spaceflight, a share-based dealer that negotiated for each satellite.

The mission comes days after India launched a rocket that accommodated 31 satellites in space.

Following the launch, the first Falcon 9 brake was returned to the ground as planned, landing on a ship off the coast of southern California, according to a live video of the flight.

However, the Falcon 9 – the enclosure that protects the satellites during the launch – missed the ship's landing net and ended up in the ocean.

"Half Falcon fascinators missed the grid, but gently touched the water," he said to Twitter, "Musk, chief executive of SpaceX. He said the ship was moving to fit them.

"The plan is to dry them up and go again, nothing is wrong with a little swim," said Musk, who is also executive director of Tesla.
