SpaceX just extended its reusability record.
A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched for an unprecedented 15th time on Saturday (Dec. 17), extending the company’s reusability record.
A Falcon 9 topped with 54 of SpaceX’s Starlink internet satellites lifted off from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida Saturday at 4:32 p.m. ET (2132 GMT).
The rocket’s first stage came back to Earth just under nine minutes later, landing on a SpaceX robotic droneship, which was stationed in the Atlantic Ocean off the Florida coast.
