SpaceX will get another ship to help land rocket boosters off Florida’s Space Coast.
SpaceX lands the first stage of its Falcon 9 rocket so that it can be reused on future missions…lowering the cost of access to space.
For some missions, SpaceX lands the booster on a drone ship that looks like a barge and tows the booster back into Port Canaveral.
As SpaceX’s launches more rockets, it will need more ships. Founder Elon Musk said a new ship named ‘A Shortfall of Gravitas’ will arrive in Florida next summer.
